    We stayed in The Place for 1 night and found it fab. Was nice and clean and very modern. Staff were very helpful. We didnt have the breakfast but the dining room looked nice.

    Good location, very handy for shopping and theatre, friendly, helpful staff, fine breakfast

    As the place is still quite new a few lighting issues in our room but the staff took that on board to get it sorted.Could have done with an armchair as it was a superior double otherwise room fine.

    Location

    Room was downstairs, view was a wall. Room was spacious but furniture sparse, one chair - no hairdrier. Was woken at 7am by constant banging of door next to room, possibly the cleaners. Would not stay there again.
