There is a Play station bar and restaurant and a conference center for more formal activities. Every room is equipped with a Play station console and modem access.
to sum it up one member of staff was amazing the rest either couldnt be bothered with you or were too busy entertaining their friends to let you get any service
paid about £500 for two nights the playroom suite and the absolut love room
check in was okay cant fault it very polite ans very efficient -
decor is crammed full with pictures some of which you can buy - painted areas were paint over paint with chips in it - kind of like an old rented place
play room you walk down the stairs into the basement which has damp smell about it - door handle broken-
in the main room you have the usual tea/coffee facilities with a mini smartie box each and rem products in the bathroom - no mini bar £2 corkage fee if you bring your own wine or bubbly - bright pink fluffy robes in the wardrobe (blanket smelt stale so didnt use this)
- decor was lovely and the pole in the room was fun -
the 8 foot round bed with round mirror on the ceiling is amazing to be honest the best nights sleep i have had in a very long time
lounge funky seating area funky wall paper wall behind tv had been slightly pulled off not a lot to say v low hanging lights everywhere which kept getting bumped into
bathroom huge is not the word- 2 sinks with mirrors- walls peeling with damp and mould and rust were in a lot of areas - the bath is enormous! lots of hot water and fills up really quickly!
you have your entrance and exit to the street
breakfast was fantastic in everyway! the full english was one of the best i have had even in a five star hotel ! really recommend it and other people around us that were ordering other types of breakfasts were wowing at their meals- fresh fruit
-only yhing i can fault is you only get one spoon and one plate for toast at breakfast - this was both mornings
we left early and told our bags would be moved to our next room for us on our return arrive back 3 that afternoon - no bags - phoned down and they were immediately brought up
the absolut love room - heart shaped head and foot board the footboard was so dirty i didnt want to touch it - very small room with balcony
the chez is pretty the place very dusty which didnt do my asthma any good
the bathroom is tiny and white basic with plastic pots for drinking cups etc
the shower was not powerful enough to wash the soap out of my hair (when asked on leaving how the stay was i only mentioned the shower not being powerful enough to use as a shower - this caused a lot of upset and the chap argued that it doesnt have a shower to it isnt advertised as having a shower to well does it have a shower screen which i replied yes- he then curtly admitted that if it is there it should be working but they dont get time to check if things like showers are working
friends of someone that was working there were invited to have their party there and the decks would be turned off at 12 on our return there was very little to see there was a party but staff were entertaining themselves and friends at the bar which made it difficult to try and get drinks and even when being served seemed more complicated than it should have been - drinks menu?
they do not do food or room service unless you pay £40 extra for a champagne or bloody mary breakfast however you can go up and get it yourselves at no extra cost- packet of crisps are £1
checking out was good efficient - and they held onto out bags until we were picked up
on the whole for students but not the price tag for students - for the price we paid i wuld have expected the service to have been a whole lot better than it was - forgetting the mould rust broken things - anyone can look past these things it was the service that really let this place down- we experienced only one member of staff amy who truly understood customer service and she really made our weekend thankyou amy!
way too expensive for what you get
I was invited to a wedding reception there and had a wonderful night, the staff were so accommodating and put up with us partying til the early, early hours! The rooms were fab, we were all staying so got to see most of them, we had use of the dirty weekend room which I am planning to hire for the weekend in the summer, a great room for a few friends to stay in to continue the party in after coming in from the bars and clubs.
If it's luxury you're after then this isn't the hotel for you, but if your after something clean and quirky then go and stay - you'll love it.
Trendy, quirky and artistic should not give a reason for anyone to charge well over the odds for a second rate hotel. Tiny bathroom (en suite) cold rooms, tiny hand basin to wash etc in and tiny shower which took ages to warm up and produced a mere trickle of water. If your love of art and 60s/70s retro overpowers any modicum of sense and you wish to throw away your money, book right now. Certainly was not worth £130 per night!
