We chose this hotel as walking distance to The Hydro, on arrival it was clear that there is a lot of construction going on to the side and behind the hotel, at check in the receptionist couldn't have been less helpful - went through the mechanics of checking us in but didn't engage in conversation at all as she was finishing her shift and clearly couldn't wait to get away. No offer to help carry any bags, no mention of where we could get a drink, no mention of Wi-Fi, no mention of breakfast options and even though I asked if I could take a free map, no help with directions.
Room was average, smaller than usual but that's city centre hotels for you, had everything you needed, only gripe would be the bathroom needed re-grouting and sealing as was a bit un-slightly.
We ventured downstairs for a drink, no bar in this hotel but you can sit in a lounge and order from a menu? went to the reception to try and order but receptionist said she was busy with other things and would come when she was free - no thanks, so we left and went further up the road to a lovely pub instead.
Sleep was not an option, our room was on the main road and even with the windows closed we heard every conversation throughout the night, every taxi driver that dropped offer, every workman clocking on for their shift on the neighbouring construction sites and as daylight broke every truck, bus, car and motorbike that used the road as a cut through - like trying to sleep in the middle of a motorway.
Overall there is very little good to say and no I will not stay again, it may have been a mid-week cheaper option but still not value for money. less
