10/10 Exceptional

The Hotel was clean and quiet but the surrounding was noisy (Supermarket and service station) but we parked in the Hotels underground save car park. But that would not stop us from staying there again.

4/10 Fair

1. No electric power for about 2 hours on 1st morning. Unable to contact emergency repairs - no phone. 2.Electronic access card failed to provide access to building on 2nd evening. Had to wait for another (unknown) guest to arrive and use his access to building. 3. Difficulty using access card to lift and room on Saturday therefore arranged with reception to leave a day early and sought a refund to which it was agreed but was told it would need to come through as that where booking was made. My husband's current serious heart condition was causing anxiety thus early departure and in excess of 24 hours notice given to reception (still awaiting refund!). Previous high quality of Punthill has fallen. No refund equals no using "lastminute" again but there is still time!! A pity as we have stayed at Punthill a number of times in previous years.

8/10 Very good

Room appeared to have been recently updated. Basic facilities but had everything we needed for a weeklong stay. No fly screen on doors or windows so couldn’t leave open for breeze but air conditioning worked well. New TV but Wi-Fi usually too slow to stream video. Only one small lift which was also used by service staff so could be slow at times. Was in a room facing away from the street and did not have any issue with noise. Staff very friendly. Great location with supermarket, cafes and public transport right at the door.

We stayed for three nights in a well-appointed one-bedroom apartment which had plenty of room. The downstairs carparking was convenient. The property is well located for access to trams, restaurants, coffee shops and normal shopping.
