I will come back!
Everything was great - service, room, front desk staff and we were content! Just wish they provided more of the "freebie" stuff in the fridge as there were 3 of us with only one small bottle of prosecco and white wine!!! But that's ok - we survived!

I booked this hotel for the location and this was fantastic. Short walks to theaters and main attractions. The staff were SO friendly, if there are 6 staff in reception, ALL 6 will say hello with a smile :) The room was clean. I was disappointed with the size of our room to be honest. The standard room photo on the website is bigger than the room we actually had. Not much bathroom space either. One at a time scenario. It was fine for us but thought it might have been bigger. Coffee machine is nice touch, however before booking we read of a fully stocked mini bar in the rooms but ours only had 1 coke, 1 diet coke, 1 still water and 1 sparkling water. No Snacks although on calling housekeeping to ask they said we didn't qualify for snacks? But did then bring us some crisps and biscuits when we asked for some fresh milk which was nice. BUT I feel it should state if you qualify or not before booking. Also I booked this hotel as it is a VIP access hotel. I am a GOLD member. The website states "This VIP Access hotel offers an exclusive amenity just for +gold members" but I received nothing which is disappointing. We paid extra for buffet breakfast the 2nd day. It was just 'OK' to be honest. Fatty cold bacon, Tasteless eggs and dry hash browns were a let down and the fruit had a lot of flies on and around. The rest was OK. It is what it is, a convenient way to fill up for the day ahead. Overall the hotel is very nice, Location and Staff amazing. Just let down on some amenities
