    Great location, is right next to Waverley Station!

    Оur room was uncomfortable, especially the shower, the bath was unsatisfying. We also heard the noise of ventilation from the kitchen outside all night. We reported this and were told that they were aware of the problem.

    The location of the hotel is great. The staff is friendly and very helpful. The hotel's clean.

    Hotel was super easy to reach and very centrally located.

    Unfortunately the windows to the street were not well insulated against the noise.

    Location

    The hotel is in serious need of updating - the facilities are very dated and sheets, towels etc threadbare. Bathroom was not clean - build up of mold in shower - yuck. When checking in you are asked to "prepay" for certain items in order to be able to charge to room - unnecessary and offensive since they have my credit card. Also, charge machine was down both when I paid for dinner and when I checked out.

    Great location

    Pillows were quite poor, look like they need replacing. The tv channels available were not paticulalrly good, very limited on what was on offer. Check Out was quite slow, not the fault of the staff member but the fact that he was on hos own at peak time, could have been resolved by having less staff in breakfast area, which is self service, and more on desk.

    Nice

    Location

    Room was very small with no air conditioning.We asked for a bigger room because we were staying for 2 nights but were told there were none available even though we had requested a large room when booking. Everyone had to leave their room from 10am _2pm because of work being carried out. We were informed of this by a notice on the lift!
