The location was superb, the room was a really good size, it was very clean a comfortable.
Parking. After being turned away from the light car park due to an ongoing murder investigation we had to park almost 1 mile away, when we enquired if we could still get the discounted parking vouchers availible from the hotel the guy behind the reception replied "we've got nothing to do with the murder". Very disappointing.
I was very impressed with the standard and quality of the rooms and ease of access to facilities
Very clean, nice facilities, great location, and good value for money
No biscuits with tea bar!! Mini bar was empty!! Checking in and out was a long process as you only had one staff on.
Reception staff friendly and efficient. Pleasant room with very comfortable bed. Very central, but quiet in spite of being full.
I find the keycard difficult to use in door, but maybe it was me being thick!
the location close to shops bars restaurants the train station and bus station..
Brilliant location in The Light - we met friends for dinner on the Saturday evening at a restaurant 2 minutes away, watched a film on Sunday in the Light and then had a late lunch at Brio next to the hotel. Also, liked parking in a secure car park overnight. Next time we will eat Sunday lunch at the hotel - looked great!
Kept forgetting to use the key card to operate the lift even though we were told at reception.
Hotel beds too soft
Beautiful room in a great location.
Room service food was of a very [poor standard. As a solo female traveller I dined from the room service menu several times and was amazed that a hotel of such good reputation should have such a limited menu and poor quality food.
Very clean room and comfy beds and nice bedlinen. Good bathroom though shower mechanism overcomplicated!
Yes, there were rows from the next door guestsin the corridor outside our room at 2am and 6am which was awful. We complained and got some money back.
Convenient to city centre, rooms quiet
Parking still expensive even with discount. Smoking in bar, which is above restaurant area, but I guess that will all change in July!
