The room was very quiet despite its very central location. The service was excellent with excellent information being provided to help with my stay.

  • Liked: Cleanliness
  • Disliked: Amenities

No ventilation in bathroom but a window that opened out into stair case that you everyone walked up. We were not provided with internet WiFi password or code to access tv channels other than the free view . View from window was shopping car park and industrial units.

Will not stay there again

Very dissapointed on arrival. They advertise they have free car parking. Queen Street Studios have no free parking of thier own. There is a large public car park at the rear of the property with some free parking which is used for everyone in the area plus time limited parking, which if you leave your car in while you go out could result in a parking ticket. Arrive there between 8am & 5pm and all free parking space will be gone. On arriving I was told to look out of the window and watch for a space to become available, my reply being I have not come on holiday to waste my time looking out of the window. So Annette (the manager) kindly let me park in her driveway. I believe this is false advertising on Queen Street Studios part. Maybe Hotels.com'' could look into it. .

The hotel is small, renovated and close to restaurants and cafes. The room, number 16 is large and suited us for a three night stay. We felt very comfortable. However it was an upstairs room. I wouldn’t recommend the lower rooms facing the public carpark due to a lack of privacy curtains. The hotel is still in the process of being renovated but with a few finishing touches, it will be great. It was also very good to be able to use the laundry. The hosts were extremely friendly and helpful.
