  • 2.0.Poor

    The room that we wanted during reservation was not given during check-in. It was a room for the handicapped person. When complained, they changed us to a nearby room with totally blocked view, which is a construction of a building, so no view at all, its like a store room. We had no choice but to take that as they said they do not have any other room which can be given to us. We were very disappointed and complained to the person at the reception, who asked us to mention these problems to Expedia as we booked through Expedia. If Expedia cannot ensure or guarantee their customers' sartisfaction, they should compensate or return the money they cahrged. Its very disappointing. We as customers think Expedia will provide or ensure high quality of service to satisfy its customers, but its not happening!

    This hotel is very reasonably priced and located in an area that is easily walkable to the City Centre. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room rather spacious for a hotel in Great Britain. The room was clean and the bed quite comfortable. We had a room on the ground floor, facing busy York/Queen Street and didn't hear any traffic or people walking by. Well worth the value!!!!

    Toilet did not work from 4am in the morning so had to use communal toilet on another floor. Heating was disabled and when enquired was told they would only put it on for 1 hour.
