Weekend Trip With Family
Location good. There is a restricted room cleaning service which the Hotel should be clear on before booking. You have to pay for parking and it can be difficult to find spaces. Air conditioning wasn't working.

Good hotel and breakfast
Great hotel, furniture wasn’t for me but that is Marriotts style. I missed out on a toothbrush since other hotels provide ones, but I guess they are trying to be eco friendly. Loved the breakfast

Good hotel
Good spacious, clean room. Public areas also clean and stylish in a "hotelly" sort of way. Room had a great view of the river but was a little bit of a trek to get to - along a corridor, up 2 floors, along another corridor, down 1 floor and then along another corridor. Staff were pleasant and efficient. Buffet breakfast was good. Parking was easy. Location was superb - 2 minutes walk to city centre.
