Great location within 5 minutes walk of the train station and walkable to most other places in the city. The staff were very friendly and helpful, plenty on hand all the time. Event space was big and staff on hand to help with whatever was needed. Food at the restaurant was alright on par with standard pub food, a little pricey for what you got. Breakfast was very good, plenty of selection although the coffee wasn't great. At the event I was attending the three course meal was presented well but not great, two bland courses and a very good brownie. The room was a good size with everything you'd expect yet I'll never understand why all hotels don't all have smart TVs yet with streaming capabilities. There were a few hairs I had to brush off the bed so not sure about cleanliness 😬.

I stayed here this week whilst on business. Gentleman who checked me in (22years or so in the job) was amazing. So welcoming, helpful, apologetic when the computer crashed, looked after me as a platinum member, simply awesome. Deserves recognition for sure. Room great, great WiFi signal which is critical as a businessman. However, I arrived back from an evening business event around 2315. The bar staff had closed the bar! A city centre hotel refusing to serve residents after 11pm???!! I asked the new reception staff and was met with a very surly response. “The bar staff have decided to shut the bar!” There were a few residents asking for a drink. One was told to go to another bar! I’m queried why residents were being refused. I received a very curt “well I can serve you a bottle” reply. I refused and went to my room. Very poor customer service. Not what I expect from an IHG establishment.|The lady who welcomed me to breakfast was great. Very welcoming, explained the service, simply great. However, breakfast was poor. I was going to start with fruit but the compote was empty. I decided, in the interests of time, to skip straight to a cooked breakfast. Not good at all. Sausages were lukewarm and had been standing far too long. Very tough skins too. Bacon ok, beans good, egg fine, hash brown lukewarm again, but even more surprising, I was not offered a hot drink at all! All hot drinks are table service, but not one member of staff approached me! |This could be a great city centre hotel, but quite clearly more training is required. If only every member of staff could be like my first receptionist and the first lady I met at breakfast.
