  • Location is very good and the new bar and dining room is industrial and has no atmosphere except that a fast food bar. Service slow even not busy, the breakfast is lovely a great selection.

    Bedroom area was nice bathroom was freezing as there was no heater, the shower was poor quality and had no power whatsoever, the staff were less than helpful. Tv was small.

  • Excellent room and location, great hotel, luxury at a Price. Very nice interior and friendly staff. The bed was very good and bar was very busy. The food was disappointing.

    Common areas a bit depressing and all in all very bad value for money. The shower was weak, breakfast was poor.

  • The location is great and the street The George is on has some fantastic bars. The hotel lobby is beautiful and reception is efficient. The breakfast is excellent and the staff serve extremely gracious, evidently recently refurbished, the facilities are impressive.

    The corridor areas to the bedroom are disappointingly dull and quot;computer says no should be confined to Little Britain.
