The staff were polite, professional and obliging. I loved the decor and style of this hotel, it was clever, funky, chic, clean and really comfortable- the bathroom was the best bit! It's been a long time since I had a bath in a hotel but it was too lovely to resist.

We arrived at the hotel with great underground, secure parking. We were greeted at reception by a pleasant lady who upgraded us to a King room. Room was nice, flat screen TV on wall and a very big comfortable bed. Very modern, bright and vibrant rooms. It is a noisy location right beside a busy road. It is a walking...

Stayed here as near office location for next day. Very modern exterior with quirky interior, and a different bedroom layout/furniture that is very nice. Used the bar and breakfast facilities which were all excellent.

The rooms and the style of the hotel are certainly different from most hotels in a good way I would hasten to add. The quality of the room was high and had all that we needed and an excellent bathroom but would expect that given it is not a cheap hotel. We asked for a quiet room and it was...

One of the quirkiest hotels I have ever encountered. The decor is incredibly eccentric, yet oddly enough, warm and inviting. The Thailand restaurant in the hotel is very good - many selections to choose from as well as their pub food. Prices are reasonable for this area.

From the bed in reception to the odd bedroom layout with giant mirror leaning against your wall, The Beacon is a boutique style hotel. Overall OK, but the rooms on the outside can suffer from road noise. Breakfast only starts at 07:00 which is also a little odd if looking to serve business guests. I've stayed on several occasions on...

I have stayed a few times on business. The restaurant is excellent for breakfast and Thai food in the evening is great. There is a funky atmosphere, especially in the evening. Gym is ok, definitely a useful facility.

Stopped off to meet a business partner and share lunch. The lobby decor, layout and furniture provided an excellent place to meet up, complete our conference call and discuss over a very enjoyable lunch. The staff were very helpful and attentive. Sincere thanks. Will definitely be back.
