My wife and I stayed for four nights between Christmas and New Year last year (2016), we selected this hotel because it was new, and part of the Accor Hotels group, which I am a loyalty member of. The welcome we received at arrival was warm, friendly and genuine. Our room was on the second (top) floor and was fairly...

We were off to a good start until we went to have dinner in the hotel restaurant, we were told that there was an hours wait, we said we were happy...

We were in room 207 on 28th and 29th December. Everything very new, and room was comfortable apart from some real annoyances. No nightlight, so had to leave bathroom light on all night (what a waste of power!) Light switches tiny and at hip height meant you needed to be a dwarf with great eyesight to read the tiny writing...

Room amenities were lacking although an Espresso machine did arrive partway through my 4 night stay. Unfortunately there was no way to identify what flavour the capsules were. Painting around the lift had insufficient warnings, I thought the wet paint was only outside the lift but as I found out there was wet paint inside the lift also. grrrrr. Female...
