“Nice hotel, a little out of the way”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2012

This is a very nice, new hotel. I would consider it on par with a Marriott. It is about a 15 minute walk to the downtown area, which makes it cheaper than the Crowne Plaza or anything similar downtown. There is a van shuttle which drops you on the river side of the train station, but it may save only you 5 minutes, and it only runs once every half hour and only holds 8 people. So, unless you catch it right before it leaves, it doesn't make sense to take the shuttle (unless it is raining). It is also right next to a tram stop which could be a good option to get to the center. Other than that, there really isn't anything of note to say.

The Good:
- Excellent spacious room on 3rd floor with separate dressing area and double bathroom.
- Bedroom windows can be opened and air con/heating deactivated if necessary.
- Very comfortable bed, sofas and chairs.
- Flat screen TV with multitude of UK channels, hi fi, fridge, modern kettle and nice clean crockery.
- Bathroom 100% clean and nice to have separate walk in shower.
- Good range of food and drinks in the Silk Bar (you must try the Moevenpick ice cream).
- Faultless check-in / check-out service and professional, friendly staff.

The not so good:
- It's a good 15 min walk to the city centre. There is a hotel shuttle which departs every 30 minutes but you need to book in advance as it is a small Ford Transit with room for 8 people.
- The more spacious rooms have a view of a neighbouring bulding.
- Bedroom contained a number of stains and marks on upholstery and carpets which took away from the overall clean feeling.
- Not enough staff serving in the bar. We counted one staff member for well over 40 customers. We would have ordered more drinks if we had been approached more regularly.

Overall a nice hotel and would certainly stay here again!!

Spotlessly clean spacious modern room with a great view, comy bed and all mod cons, Reception staff friendly and professional. Not too far from the centre, with good tram and free shuttle service. Great value for money. Thoroughly recommended.

The hotel is a bit far from the city centre but getting to town is quite easy, especially with the hotel shuttle bus which departs every half hour and the tram station is in front of the hotel.

The facilities are appropriate for its level. However the service are pretty cool. I can understand why other visitors made similar comments after I stayed there. The staff are polite but lack the passion. One driver in particular was pretty rude and does not really make the passengers feel welcome.

I have a few days my hotel amenities were not refilled, including the fully using shampoo. I put down a note requesting for no coffee but only English breakfast tea everyday but was totally ignored.

If you can get a good rate for this hotel, fine. Otherwise better forget about it.

My friend and I stayed here for 2 nights recently,what a hotel, there was'nt a fault in any aspect of this hotel,we had a stunning view from our 10th floor room,there was a courtesy mini bus every 30 mins to the central station which was the centre of town,furthermore it was actually only a 5 min walk so the transport was a bonus. The food was excellent,the bar even had a happy hour on the Friday night, and the beefburger supper was the size of a victoria sponge cake,enough to share with someone. All staff were very helpful,we would go back for sure.

Room Tip: All rooms are de-luxe,
