Our room had mould around the bathroom sink which was wet and distcusting. They changed the room for us strate the way. Also theyre were small hairs on the bathroom floor
Meera, gb2 night trip
Good 6,0
Great central location and amazing team of employees; thereafter very disappointing. Smallest family room we have ever stayed in: once the sofa bed was out, there was no room to access the side of the double bed, so had to crawl in from the bottom. The shower floor and walls were covered with black mould and the bathroom was damp due to the lack of ventilation. Such a shame, as every encounter with a member of staff was professional, friendly and super helpful. This hotel is in dire need of a renovation - certainly on the 4th floor.

Poor 2,0
I don’t know anything about this hotel as I didn’t get the chance to stay there as my trio was cancelled due to Covid but they still took the full payment and refused a refund. Despite giving them 4 months notice. So for that I give them 0/10 for ripping me off.
