Liked: Location

Disliked: It was cramped. The lights in the en suite wasn't working so had to shower etc in the dark. It was also difficult to sleep because of the noise from outside and inside.

Business / conference

28 June 2010

Liked: Staff on the desk (a nice young man) was very friendly and helpful and went the extra mile by providing us with a kettle.

Disliked: room is located directly above an all night pub. We only managed to get about 3/4 hours sleep a night. Ok if you are there to club all night but we were there to attend a 3 day conference - not good.
