My Review

Three Cocks Hotel is an old coaching inn on the road between Brecon and Hay-On-Wye. This building is genuine old oak beams and creaky and uneven floor boards. The service is first class with excellent food and lovely large en-suite rooms. Price for one night for two people with dinner (on the menu worth about £30 each) and breakfast was £115. Excellent value

A very large and confusingly numbered hotel which is in fact several hotels knocked together to make one. Because of it's size it's very busy, especially at breakfast. However, breakfast is good with lots of choice

My Review

Very pleasant and comfortable hotel about 1KM from the very centre of Berlin but with excellent transport links (the bus from the airport stops right outside!) The bedroom was large and comfortable, though slightly chilly. There is a large bathroom with a bath that resembles a swimming pool and a shower that attempts to drill you into the floor it is so powerful, but very refreshing. A delicious buffet breakfast with cold meats, cheeses, breads, fruit and cereals is served in the breakfast room which is, bizarrely, on the 6th floor. It does mean that you get a good view of the Kurfürstendamm whilst eating breakfast. Very friendly and helpful staff.

Small and compact room with a very small shower and toilet room. Helpful without actually being overly friendly service. The room was only quickly tidied each day, rather than actually cleaned and the card key to my room had to be reactivated on all except the last evening. Breakfast are plentiful in food, but not in cutlery or table space!

A comfortable but somewhat soul-less hotel. Very close to the central station. The room was quite large, but had no air-conditioning, which, given it was over 30C when I arrived, was a bit uncomfortable. There was a window but the location of the hotel was very noisy so it was difficult to sleep with it open and difficult to sleep with it closed. The bathroom had a bath and shower, but now shower curtain so it was quite difficult to have a shower. The breakfasts were excellent and the hotel staff were very friendly.

My Review

A very basic service is all that can be accommodated in a train carriage. Each cabin has space for two beds (one on top of the other.) This is reduced to one bed if you pay first class. A lounge car offers an area to relax in and use the bar/cafe. In cabin service is also offered.
There is a wash basin in each cabin and two toilets for each carriage of 12 cabins (maximum of 24 people to a toilet) There are no shower facilities on board but they are available for a price at Inverness and Euston (Free at Euston to First Class ticket holders.) The staff are all very friendly and helpful and make for a pleasant journey, even if you do get woken up when the train splits and joins in Edinburgh in the early hours of the morning and then get disorientate as it reverses back out of Edinburgh and you wake up facing a different direction to the one you went to sleep in! Breakfast is provided free of charge and comprises a large cup of tea or coffee, a cereal/yoghurt thing, a bacon or egg roll and orange juice.
Sleeper service was relaunched with new rolling stock and rooms in 2019 - this review is based on the older rolling stock

The hotel looks considerably more expensive than we were paying for it. The rooms are fairly large with satellite TV and a small kitchenette!! The breakfast was a cold continental buffet but with lots to choose from.

Very friendly and helpful staff, despite it's location just off the main ring road it was very quiet. Excellent breakfasts and a very comfortable, if slightly compact room. Strange layout of hotel with at least 4 different lifts that served 4 completely different parts of the hotel with no links between each part except through the reception. To get from my room on the 6th floor to breakfast on the first floor required coming all the way down to the ground, across the lobby and back up another floor!

N.B. My opinion of this hotel is affected by the fact that it was the only hotel available on a very wet and cold Friday night after the booking agent had let me down. I was in a bad mood so the hotel is probably significantly nicer if it is the one you have actively chosen to stay in. See Hall of Horror

My Review

A pleasant B&B overlooking the Lido just round the headland from the centre of St Hellier. Very basic rooms with shared showers and toilets but with an attractive view from the balcony over the beach. Very nice breakfasts and exceptionally friendly staff and good value for money (£24.50pppn)

An exceptionally comfortable hotel. Located close to Queen Street Station and a short walk from the city centre. The service was friendly and the breakfast very good, though a very British approach to the continental Ham and Cheese breakfast idea - Ham and blocks of cheddar cheese!

An exceptionally comfortable hotel, though they did get the booking wrong and gave us double instead of twin rooms!! The hotel itself is very new and inside it is well presented.

When we finally got into a room it was very pleasant with a view over to the cathedral (on picture below it is the room directly above the white entrance porch!). However, this was a day late as they had double booked us and we had to spend a night in the Wensum Valley Hotel. The staff were friendly and the breakfast was good, and we only had to pay for one night instead of two so there were some plus points!

A very basic service is all that can be accommodated in a train carriage. Each cabin has space for two beds (one on top of the other.) This is reduced to one bed if you pay first class. A lounge car offers an area to relax in and use the bar/cafe. In cabin service is also offered.
There is a wash basin in each cabin and two toilets for each carriage of 12 cabins (maximum of 24 people to a toilet) There are no shower facilities. The staff are all very friendly and helpful and make for a pleasant journey, even if you do get woken up at 3am with the announcements at Exeter St David station going off! Breakfast is provided free of charge and comprises a large cup of tea or coffee, cereal or croissant, a couple of biscuits and orange juice.

The hotel has been created from 3 Georgian houses knocked into one and has a slightly jumbled feel to it. The rooms were quite spacious with TV (Standard channels only) and mini-bar. Continental buffet breakfast with the option to pay the extra for a full Scottish breakfast. About 3 minutes walk from Waverly Bridge and the centre of the city. Very friendly staff make this an enjoyable hotel to stay in (£36 pppn)

Located on the floors directly above a block of shops (a Jewellers, a Slot machine arcade and a "Cabaret show bar" (with lots of flashing lights saying "Erotik" - Don't know what that is about!)) about 100 yards from the Hauptbahnhof this hotel is very centrally located.
Friendly and welcoming staff and a comfortable, if slightly small room, but most importantly for the first time on this trip en-suite!!! The breakfasts are excellent with lots of choice including some hot food and as much, un-watered down, orange juice as you want!!

2004 - Very large room which divides into a bedroom & an office. Very comfortable. Friendly staff & good service. Breakfast consisted of just a croissant & a cup of tea. The hotel mostly caters for the business market, so has no on-site catering. However, you can buy food & drink from the hotel shop & consume it in your room (they even provide you with a kettle & a microwave to cook it in!)
2020 - Despite the hotel being rebranded from SuiteHotel to Novotel Suites in the interveening 16 years it doesn't look as though the rooms have been refurbished as the colour scheme was still that of SuiteHotel, though the beds had been upgraded. Still very large room which divides into a bedroom & an office. Very comfortable. Friendly staff & good service. Breakfast is now provided - though at the time of visiting under heavy Covid-19 restrictions. You can still buy food & drink from the hotel shop & consume it in your room (they even provide you with a kettle & a microwave to cook it in!)

Very cramped room (4 people in a space smaller than an Etap room), and quite stuffy. The beds were horribly uncomfortable and the pillows effectively non existent (if it hadn't been for checking I would quite happily believe that the pillow case was just stuffed with other pillow cases.
The breakfasts were very mean with "Only one glass of juice per guest, no more allowed" and all the hams and salamis cut up into much smaller pieces so you couldn't take so much in your one visit!

The hotel had obviously been something else previously as it looks nothing like any of the other Ibis's I have stayed in. Service good, breakfast good, shower very poor as it only had two setting - scold or chill - and kept alternating between them without any human intervention!

Given that the hotel is only 1 year old it's not in the greatest of shape, many of the fixtures were broken or not in the best shape, the shower holder was held together with tape, there was a slight smell of drains in reception and there were cigarette marks everywhere! Everything is forgiven though once you have tried the bed (exceptionally comfortable) or the Breakfast (plentiful)

Located just below the Castle this hotel is in a prime location. Sadly the walls are thinner than paper so you can hear everything else that goes on in the hotel

My Review

Exceptionally comfortable hotel with stunning breakfasts (2006), In 2013 I was given a room in the annex which was dated and less comfortable. Also given it was across the road from the reception, bar and breakfast area it meant either having to take a coat with you to go to eat, or getting cold walking between the two buildings.
A sprawling hotel that has grown from the original 1930's building to cover two further, newer, buildings on the opposite side of Håkonsgatan. The original building and the newest are the more comfortable and have better facilities. Sadly on the second visit in January 2013 I had a room in the third building and the room was quite small and dated.

Only put up in the hotel because the sleeper was cancelled. The room was quite small, but had a stunning view over princes street to the Castle and Scot Monument. Sadly, it was single glazed so very noisy and I didn’t get much sleep

My Review

This review is biased as I was upgraded to a very nice cabin with a balcony and a free minibar! Room was spacious and very comfortable
As a floating hotel, effectively, the ferry has a lot of amenities, and a choice of places to eat dinner and breakfast, which you can have buffet style, and over eat at!

Small and comfortable room, but it was only cleaned once in the four nights I stayed

My Review

Considering it is supposed to be superior to the neighbouring Etap that I stayed in the last time I came to Zurich, the Ibis is considerably inferior for service and quality!
The key card had to be changed twice to get one that worked, the door kept jamming, and despite booking 5 months in advance with clear instructions for a no smoking room I got one that stank of stale smoke. In addition the hotel instead of taking an impression of my credit card as security charged Sf600 (£300) directly to it to be refunded back when I left!

A converted jail, this should be a really interesting a great hotel, but I can't see what they have converted. The only difference between a jail cell and your room is the fact that you can open the door from the inside, other than that the beds are uncomfortable, and the room cramped
No facilities in the room, which for the cost is a shock, Breakfast was a shambles and poorly organised. It looks like they have had a good idea, but poorly executed it

***Hotel now closed (December 2019)*** Once you get over the reception staff who appear totally disinterested in the hotel, it's actually quite pleasant. The rooms are large, with a decent ensuite and it's very handily located just by the bus stop to the airport (three stops further on)
Breakfast is a little limited in choice, but there is plenty of it.
Hotel has subsequently closed and was derelict (2019)

Small hotel located just back from the Grand Canal. The rooms are quite small, with the bathroom being particularly compact.

My Review

A pretty bog standard Travelodge, to the extent that, if it wasn’t for the giant sign on the supermarket it is next door to telling you that this is Berwick you could be in any town in the country.
My only dealing with staff was a check-in and out as I hadn’t brought breakfast (a small pack which I had had in Plymouth and decided wasn’t worth the money, especially with a supermarket on the doorstep). They were helpful and friendly in the short interactions that I had with them. The main negative was that the room was not properly cleaned each day.

It should have been a good hotel, there were no problems with the room or the hotel
It's just being kept awake all night by the mice that are in the room kind of puts you off and makes you query the cleaning and running of the hotel! A thorough apology from the manager and a refund did follow a couple of weeks later though.

***N.B. this hotel is now a Holiday Inn - see seprate review*** Centrally located, the hotel is one of the largest in Belfast.
Consequently it is very busy, but not sufficiently staffed, so there were queues to check in, queues to check out, queues to get seated for breakfast. The room was comfortable and the food was good.
Hotel has changed ownership and is now part of the Holiday Inn chain - I have subsequently booked to stay at the Holiday Inn (June 2020)

A comfortable hotel in the centre of town. At one point the Regent hotel was one of the largest and most important hotels in Europe, but time and owners have not treated it too kindly and its now a pleasant Travelodge with slightly larger than average rooms
The staff are friendly and helpful, there are no catering facilities in the hotel, so breakfast is a cold goodie bag, or the nearby Tesco's!

A comfortable, but not particularly conveniently located hotel near the main airport in Madrid.
Service was good and the staff were friendly, but a key part of an airport hotel is it's links to the airport. The shuttle bus was quite unreliable and infrequent. As it was also the only way of easily getting into the city without an expensive taxi ride it was a bit of a poor show (especially as many of the other hotels appeared to have much more frequent services)

Friendly and helpful staff, but they can't take away from the fact that this hotel is pretty much the last building in Jerez located 20 minutes walk (uphill) from the old town and the best part of an hour from the station. There are bus links around 8 minutes walk away.
Not helping matters was the complete loss of water one morning! On the positive side breakfasts were good, but not enough to make up for the price of the hotel

What should have been a good hotel was spoilt by the shambles caused by the hotels decision to overbook itself and close it's restaurant so that it was impossible to have Breakfast that I'd paid for but they then refused to refund
The staff were not particularly polite or helpful, the rooms were overpoweringly hot. The hotel had the feel of one which nobody cared much about. However, I subsequently got a very full apology from the manager, along with a refund for the breakfast that never happened.

My Review

Located on the banks of the Rhine with stunning views across to the fortress (and more importantly it being one of the ugliest buildings in town you can't see it from inside itself!)
Staff were all friendly and helpful, but everything was a bit let down by the checkout process, the couldn't check me out of the room as the computer was playing up and it's only when I pointed out that I had a train to catch that they agreed to just bill my card later.

Very small single room with a shower/toilet off to one side. Room included a fridge and hot plate for basic self-catering
Staff checking in were friendly and helpful. On a couple of mornings, there was no hot water as other guests had used it all up!
