Recent guest reviews

Stayed over for a night during a conference. Very central location, 10 mins walk from the station. Check-in was a bit slow as there was too many people waiting and only a couple of counters. Room was on the six floor with decent views across the city. Very large and clean room; comfortable bed. Bathroom was very clean and large too, excellent shower pressure too. Breakfast was delicious too - full english and cereals available too (the usual stuff).

Booked this Hotel as it was close to the venue that we were going to meet Anthony Joshua. The Hotels staff were all Polite and friendly. Our room was a good size, with all the mod cons that you expect in a Hotel of this standard. We would gladly recommend this Hotel and we will stay here if we are going to a function in this area.

We visited here after work on Friday. The hotel was quite empty as we went in we were welcomed and we had two glasses of wine. They cost £8 which wasn't to bad for a city centre location .The hotel was very clean.

Avoid this hotel where possible, I had the unfortunate experience of staying here for one night and would never go back, customer service is a disgrace, when I checked in they left me at front desk for about 20 mins before giving me my room key, no apology or anything, when I went for food I had the steak which was horrendous, I asked for an iron in the morning and none came, so I went down and asked again and still no iron, half hour later went down again and they said they would send one up then they ring my room to tell me there is no irons, no irons in a hotel, so if they had of told me this straight away I might not of been late for meeting, incompetent staff and drab rooms, don't stay here u less a last resort

In the city centre which is a drawback for things such as parking however is good for a one night stay. Staff is friendly and the room comfortable with a nice breakfast to follow after a good night's sleep.

This is a decent business hotel. Near the train station and near places to eat. The rooms are clean and business like. The bed comfortable enough and the bathroom efficient. The breakfasts are buffet style and all self service but very good. I had to give 5 stars because the only moan I can think of is the cups in the bedroom are small (you need mugs) and you can't knock a star off for that.

A pleasant enough hotel. Bed was ok, laminate floors are not good in hotel bedrooms, noisy street which could be heard throughout the night, breakfast was very average with the most vile fresh orange I've ever tasted. Very good Large walk in shower which was a treat. Acceptable but there are better hotels out there for the price. Good location though.

I checked in this evening and went for a meal in the restaurant. It wasn't busy but still had nearly a half hour wait to be served. The food came quickly enough and it was basic but pleasant. I have a twin room on the fourth floor. The walk in shower is pleasant. But the water isn't contained to the shower area. There are tea and coffee making facilities and open hanger space for your clothes. The room is clean but the laminated floor is more style over comfort. The room is clean. The bed is comfy and I fell asleep relatively quickly. Unfortunately the rooms have adjoining doors and you can hear a lot from the room next door. I was woken by the couple next door at 3am and again at 4am. After that the noise from the street below kept me awake as did the light streaming in where the curtains don't meet the floor. Again the couple could be heard at 5:30am. I have twice tried to ring reception to be moved but on both occasions the phone has gone unanswered. The room is also stuff with no openable windows to let in fresh air. I have had a terrible night and although I am booked in for three nights for a business trip I am considering travelling back and forth instead. I wouldn't book here again but I'm sure that the couple next door will as they have had a great night...

We stayed at the Ramada Encore on a Saturday evening so that we could attend a concert at the O2 Academy. Turned out to be a £5 taxi ride away so the hotel was ideally placed. There are a number of good pubs and restaurants within a short walk of the hotel…..and a Pizza take away which was still open at 2.30 am very close by. The Curve theatre is just round the corner so the hotel is an ideal base. The car parking is in the NCP and a discounted rate of £11 is available for hotel guests. Get your ticket verified on check out. The hotel is modern with a large stylish bar on the ground floor. There is a gym in the basement but we didn’t get a chance to see it never mind use it. The bar wasn’t busy and for a Saturday night that was strange. 7 floors served by stairs and 2 lifts. Our room was fine for the night. Double bed rather than king size, lovely walk in shower and a bright décor were the highlights. Nothing whatsoever to complain about. We didn’t have breakfast but it was advertised as a buffet style for a tenner…can’t be bad as a coffee will cost more than £2 at a coffee shop. Overall a good stay and we can recommend the hotel for an evening in town

The room was very clean with a lovely new bathroom. The bed was comfortable. Only issue is that there was laminate flooring in the room which meant I could hear footsteps in adjacent rooms. And that included very loud footsteps at 2am thumping about. Why use laminate in a hotel? But otherwise it's a fairly luxurious place to stay.
