NSBNC TripAdvisor review

Lovely pizzas at the Chill cafe. Raquel was very attentive and gave us orange slices in our water. Quiet and relaxing setting. Train information displayed, comfy seats. Didn’t try the hotel itself so can’t comment on that.

Perfect location for us but problems checking in

I had booked two rooms on your internet website and paid with the American Express card. When we arrived, the two women at the front reception had a lot of trouble locating the reservation even though I presented them with a print-out confirmation for two rooms. After 15-20 minutes, they gave us two keys and we went to the rooms. The next morning a letter came to one of the rooms asking me to come to the front desk again since there were questions about payment for one of the rooms. I had discarded the print-out but was able to show payment by accessing my American Express account. This took another 10 minutes -- but once I showed them Amex payment they located confirmation in the hotel system and were very apologetic, blaming the delays and complications on an IT issue.

Dear Cristopher, Thank you for your feedback! Let me express my more sincerely apologies for the laundry issue during your stay at our property. We do not have our own laundry service, which means this service is provided by an external company. Besides, we are working in order to replace this company to avoid any further issues in the future. We appreciate your sharing your concerns, and it is our hope that you will give us the opportunity to better serve you in the near future. Kind Regards, Andi. R

Ok but very noisy

Convenient location for a stay. Twin beds were literally touching so no different to a double. The most noisy plumbing ever- if someone elsewhere in the building went to the loo on the night the gushing water sound above my head woke me up. Unimpressed with having to secure £50 deposit as part of check in (which still hasn’t been released) we were going to be there for 8 hours with no intent of buying anything

Excellent stay

I have stayed in this hotel around 6 times and I have no complaints whatsoever. Staff are always friendly, polite and helpful. Rooms are always extremely clean and the decor is lovely. The breakfast is always fantastic and plenty of variety. The hotel is right next to the train station, bus stop and taxi rank. The hotel is very quiet for being in a busy area. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone!
