          Nicely renovated, friendly staff.

          Bit loud if you choose a room on the street side. Bit of an ugly view if you have a room on the other side...

          Thought the hotel was very well presented. Enjoyed the decor and it felt like a luxury hotel. Champagne Central was lovely.

          I ate in the restaurant early and felt a bit rushed through. The waiting staff were a bit too eager to please. My bread arrived at the same time as my main course. The mullet was slightly undercooked. I thought that the food didn't quite live up to the fantastic surroundings. On a small note, the tv channels were limited, it took an inordinate amount of time to change channel and the channels were in alphabetical order which was very irritating.

          We stayed at this hotel nearly 60years ago,so it was partly a nostalgic trip. Much has improved since then but it was still good.

          Its location within the Central Station for our needs on this trip.

          Unfortunately its location meant that the noise from late night revellers, especially on the weekend, disturbed our sleep. In fact the noise was so loud and went on until 4 a.m. that we had to use ear plugs. Considering this was meant to be an executive room we were surprised that there wasn't a razor socket in the bathroom, no 'fridge, and not even a small pad of paper to write on. Additionally there isn't a ventilation cum heating system in the room.

          The hotel was very luxurious and the bedroom was huge. The restaurant and Champagne Bar were lovely. We ordered room service an the lasagne was the best I have ever tasted! Would highly recommend the hotel.

          There is no actual parking for the hotel and city centre parking was expensive.

          The room was very modern and most importantly the bathroom was fresh and clean.

          The wall mounted radiator didnt generate sufficient heat and the lack of mini bar was disappointing.
