One of the bar areas where it felt we had the place to ourselves.
Service by staff was always prompt, helpful and friendly.
The airy and spacious reception area.
One of the atriums and the four floor levels of the hotel
With spooky predictability, we found that our room had a view over a car park. Or, to be more precise, an area of desolation that was 'enhanced' by the odd container, vehicle and debris. Obviously, a site for the next hotel.
If visually, this didn't have a lot going for it, it got a little worse once we found that our room was located just above the loading bay for delivery lorries. This meant enjoying the 5.00am (?) loading of wheeled laundry cages as they were rolled into the back of a large lorry. Add to this, various banging, thumping, whining and crashing of activity below us at late and early hours. It could have merited a request to move rooms, but instead, we just chose not to get obsessed with it.
For people who would find this intolerable, it would be worth making sure you didn't get placed in room 1055 or any of the two rooms or so either sde. So, with hindsight, I think we would have been better off booking a superior room (at extra cost) instead of what was practically a bargain basement room. Having said that, we are confident that staff would have re-allocated us into another room if we had requested that. Furthermore, the room we had was of a high standard, spacious and with a large comfortable bed.
