Great attentive staff and very comfortable bed. Very clean rooms although the scuff marks on the wall could be cleaned off. The what's on magazine would have been a great read if it was an up to date copy. This copy ran out in March. Thank you for granting our request for a room on an upper floor but we did have a laugh when we pulled back the curtain to view a wall and not the view we were hoping for. So we wondered for what other reason would you request an upper floor if not for a view. Our meals at Bloody Mary's were fantastic.

I like that it was close to the city centre. what I didnt like was that the reception could give me directions to the shopping area when asked, I was given a map and told to head that way. I would have though for a 5 star hotel i would get a bit more detail. its only a small thing in a big picture.
