What a great experience to stay in this hotel! The room was very spacious and comfortable to stay in for 2 nights. Although it was a little old, it didn’t bother my stay that much. The staff were also very friendly, the room service is good. They also provide drinking water everyday. The breakfast was really delicious, I would say it’s the best breakfast ever I had in UK.

Despite being next to a football stadium the Voco was peaceful and calm, the staff were very welcoming and the room was clean, comfortable and warm. We only stayed one night but would have liked to have stayed longer. During our visit we did use the pool which was a little disappointing as the floor felt rather slimy and the jacuzzi was out of order. The bed was extremely comfortable was cosy pillows. The buffet style breakfast was amazing all tastes catered for.
