It was supposed to be a disability accessible room. The shower seat was not fit for purpose, as screws were hanging out of the wall and therefore unable to be used. Lock on door not working and body wash bottles empty on arrival. General Manager did not even ask if I was okay.

I was very pleasantly surprised by this hotel. Amazing, comfy bed, great shower, great room and surrounding area. Only downsides are that the bathroom has a window and door with glass so the sunlight shines through early, and the parking was painful as it fills up from everyday people parking. They should make it exclusive for the hotel.

Hi Nathan, Thanks for the top review. I am pleased you enjoyed your stay. Unfortunately all the car parks in the area are owned separately to the hotel so are essentially public carp parks, which does make it challenging when the hotel is full I hope to welcome you back in the near future. Kind regards, Zoe Harrison Rooms Division Manager

Dear Mat, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. I am disappointed to see that your recent stay was not up to your expectation, however that does not reflect our typical experience at our hotel. It is always helpful if we are made aware of specific challenges to the overall enjoyment of your stay that we can rectify while you are still at the hotel. We hope to welcome you back in the future. Kind regards, Zoe Harrison Rooms Division Manager

The location ( very close to The Tivoli ) worked really well for us and the attached parking was handy. The Family room and the Restaurant and Staff were very good. We did notice a smell in the corridors on the 1st floor and we were disappointed to see a meal tray, outside a unit, on the floor, from our arrival until the next day.

Hi Margaret, thank you for taking the time to leave us a a review. We value your feedback to further improve our service. I am pleased that you have enjoyed your stay with our friendly staff and how convenient it is being close to Tivoli. However I am sad to read that a part of your stay was let down by an overlooked tray being left in the corridor. I have personally looked into this matter. This however does not reflect our typical experience at our hotel. It is always helpful if we are made aware of specific challenges to the overall enjoyment of your stay that we can rectify while you are still at the hotel. We hope we can welcome you back in the future. Kind regards, Faisul Hassan.
