A 4 * hotel”

We found the hotel a bit tucked away, in town, just a short walk away with shops & restaurants. The hotel was very clean & the staff are very acommodating. Unfortunately, there wasn't a great deal of food to purchase as an evening snack or meal. We think this was due to covid regulations or staffing problems. We were given 2 options a pizza or a panini. There was a fully equipped bar with familiar drinks on tap & in bottle. Televisions on the walls with news channels which were subtitled with no sound with music in the background. There was a terrific, help yourself, hot breakfast with machines of d.i.y. toast, different coffee's & fruit juices. The hotel bar-lounge-eating area is large and very stylish. There were 2 lifts & stairs to all the 8 floor single/double/triple bedroom accommodation. Our room consisted of a very stylish black & white tiled, large door opening to a power-shower. There is a large mirrored tiled wall with fitted wc & sink, which looked brand new but obviously cleaned by professionals. Our bedroom was lovely but unfortunately i found the bed was too soft and very easily we could roll off the end. I did find the pillows given were perfect, 1 soft & 1 medium to firm, to accommodate different kinds of sleepers. Plenty of tea/coffee with a built-in tray for the kettle to power point which I found great. We found the tv was a bit small for the room but had multi channels provided. There is a large window with no option to be opened as its just plain glass. I did have problems working out the heating, it was very cold during the evening & night. Sadly, we agreed & decided to give up on it. But as a overnight stay, its a great hotel. Thankyou so much for the hospitality we had as a loved up couple xxx

Great location. Nice room. Breakfast is far too stressful.”

The hotel location, check-in and the room are all excellent. We slept really well, there were no problems with noise. Breakfast was just far too busy. There were people constantly walking right next to our dining table attemptibg to get to the serving area, making our breakfast a truly unmemorable experience. My wife didn't enjoy the food itself and my own thoughts are that it could be far better. In summary, the hotel is in a great location with parking available just across the road - but you may want to consider eating breakfast out, such as at one of the many cafes in the Northern Quarter (e.g. 33 Oldham St, Ezra & Gil).
