Myself and my husband have just returned from 2 nights here. Purpose of the visit was Xmas shopping and to see Billy Elliot at The Palace Theatre. On check in, the female receptionist appeared rude. We went up to the apartment and it had no shower screen or curtain! We returned to reception straight away. I told her the problem... More

I stayed overnight at the Blue Rainbow Apartment Hotel for work and had a terrible stay. It took ages to get checked in, then when I did get to my room I found there was no linen whatsoever. I went to complain to reception to be told they were aware of the problem and 30 rooms were without linen, this... More

We were tentative about turning up after reading the shocking reviews. We booked months ago as we wanted somewhere reasonably close to MEN for a concert and the reviews were mixed but OK. Upon arrival, the receptionist gave us a key for a room on the 6th floor and the lift had broken. After the treck, we immediately reported back... More

We visited here Sat 26th Nov 2016 and booked in April due to lovely photos of the apartments , well to say we were shocked at how different it was is an understatement. Arrival - it took a while to find it as the signage was minimal ( maybe a reason ). No one on reception and had to ring... More

We stayed her 26.11.16 to attend a friends birthday party. The guy checking us in was very pleasant when checking us in. We went to our room which was on the first floor.

Having seen some recent reviews I was worried about our visit. It didn't start too well with nobody on reception and some other guest complaining about TVs not working and floorboard coming up in the bathroom. However when we got to the room we were pleasantly surprised. It was clean and the rooms were all good. Yes there is room... More
