Great location, right next to the train station. A short walk to shops and restaurants. Check-in staff were very helpful. Lovely complimentary Elemis products.

Great for a one night stay.
The hotel is very clean, very friendly staff and right next to Piccadilly station. Breakfast buffet has a good selection, with hot food cooked to order if required. The only problem, is the homeless people around the corner who hassle you when you leave and enter the hotel.

Expected better
We booked this hotel for our anniversary and we felt like we could have got something a lot better. Our first opinion was great with welcoming smiles at the front desk and a good atmosphere in the front lobby with the Christmas lights still up. Although, I was very close to being charged twice for the room and it wasn’t until I double checked and mentioned that I was sure payment hadn’t already been taken from the account that the staff member had to confirm with a senior before realising she didn’t need to charge me. As we went up in the lifts we found stains around the lift, poorly cleaned doors with finger marks and dried up spray marks, not well wiped down. As we approached our room there was an awful smell in the corridor which further followed into the room itself. The room was quaint, a nice size and looked out to the train station which was fine. The bathroom had no ventilation which made it very awkward after use. Furthermore the toilet continued to release water for a good 10minutes after use and at one point we thought we would have to deal with the noise all night. The bed was uncomfortable with two singles joined together. We had booked a classic king. We found ourselves dipping in the middle and had to move either to one side of the bed or the other. Overall I don’t think we will be returning here.. the hotel needs a complete revamp.
