Stayed here the night before my wedding. The staff were great and gave me a room upgrade. The room was clean and lovely. 5 minute walk to the town center. A shame that I didn't feel hungry as the breakfast was really good.

Came here with my other half as a little getaway treat and it was fantastic. As we arrived we were told we'd been given a complimentary upgrade as the room was available so we spent the night in one of their 'feature' rooms. Super king bed with a down duvet, open plan bathroom, very tall ceilings, just absolutely stunning. They... More

Excellent boutique hotel, good restaurant with service willing but inconsistent, accommodating staff, pool, spa, standard rooms a bit small but comfy beds , informative ipad issued with room key , easy walk to city center, minimal parking if one has car,competitive room rates..... We use many hotels the world over during the course of a year and think most would... More

Got a late room deal for the standard room. Hotel is stunning on arrival, modern styling with a touch of high end. Large wooden ball in a room for a check in desk and a great feel. Room was a disappointment - we called it the cupboard - up on the third floor in the roof with angled ceilings and... More

Stopped for the second time for 2 days for sons graduation. Well located for the City centre. Was busy but service was friendly and very obliging. Restaurant service was average at breakfast. Pool was excellent. Parking very restricted but OK on the adjoining public pay (c£10 per 24 hours) car park.

Stayed for a short weekend break. This time alone apart from my dog. Overall a very high quality experience. Staff warm and very dog friendly. Facilities excellent, especially the pool; only let down by slight disorder at breakfast. Highly recommended.

A lovely hotel. Staff friendly. Loved the iPad device for check in, music etc. food excellent. Room great but simply not my taste. Fascinating building and great social areas. Comfy bed. Nice toiletries. I was visiting my daughter for uni and the upgrade from premier inn was certainly worthwhile! Would use again.

Okay so it was grad week so the hike in cost was not a surprise. We have stayed in this hotel 3/4 times while our daughter was at the uni but its the gradual fall in standards that now prompts this review, as cost corners are being cut everywhere from the sticky patches on the furniture in the lounge &...

Second visit to this hotel, this time for our daughter's graduation, we had a couple of hiccups,but that can happen in any hotel and for me the measure of an establishment is how they deal with them. Fiona ,the Manager, handled the situation very professionally indeed in keeping with what one would expect with the very highest hotels. We were... More

This hotel offers you a fantastic experience and doesn't let you down. If you like urban chic and original features fusing together, good service, locally sourced ingredients for meals and a cool spa experience, then this is for you. The breakfast has improved since our last visit, hence 4 to 5. You may have to park in the car park... More
