Positive Reviews

Friendly, efficient check-in.

Upon arrival, guests will be treated to a warm and friendly reception, and sped through their check-in process. The staff are friendly, and always go out of their way to see to their guests' comfort.

Bus frequency delight.

For guests staying at The Hydro, they will delight in the frequency of the bus stops right outside their front door, taking them wherever they wish to go, and bringing them back at whatever time they please. This is the added bonus of staying at a hotel that is located on the bus route.

Well working Wi-Fi.

Guests who are reliant on the Wi-Fi, either for business, or for anything else, will find that they will not be disappointed with the complimentary service provided. Easy to connect to, and great connectivity.

Negative Reviews

Update the décor.

At The Hydro, guests will find that the décor has an age to it, and that maybe it is time for them to upgrade, or at least revamp the rooms, to keep with the times. Although the rooms are kept clean, those looking for modern, and fashionable accommodation had best look elsewhere.

Early dining ending.

For those arriving late back to The Hydro, had best be prepared to eat elsewhere, or have already dined, as the dinner mealtime ends earlier than one may expect, which could leave guests gong hungry if they aren't able to make other arrangements.

Not much choice.

Although there is a great selection of foods at breakfast time, there isn't much of a choice for vegetarians or vegans, which is upsetting, especially if one is a big breakfast person, and all that there is to eat, is a piece of toast, and an apple.
