    It was awful view with awful bed. No elevator to the second floor. We had 4 suitcases... Not clean...for more than £400 a night, it’s impossible! Amenities were not supplied properly and the toilet bin was not emptied.

    Everything but the concierge.

    Bed too short.

    Great location with car park. Bed was very comfortable.

    Carpets in room & public areas looking tired, could do with some modernising.
