We stayed at the City Rooms for one night. The room itself was very nice, big with a huge bathroom and tub/shower. Breakfast was brought up to our room in the morning and consisted of juice, yogurts, and bread items. The down side is that this is an event venue. We were told at check in that there was an... More

Wow! Great venue with amazingly helpful and friendly staff and fantastic food. We have been involved with several parties and events held there and the staff cannot do enough to help and have great attention to detail. We would highly recommend The City Rooms if you are thinking of any event, whether corporate or personal.

The City Rooms is an 18th century building refurbished to provide 4 room accommodation but mainly focuses on event hosting. This review is for the B&B only. The building is impressive and some effort has been made to present a mix of old and boutique style. Sadly the wow factor isn't quite there as the standard of decoration and finish... More

The City Rooms is a fantastic period venue with a really great team as well. We have used the venue for our annual corporate party for the past three years and every year has been a huge success not least because of all the help we get from the team when planning and organising our events. Nothing is too much... More

The City Rooms hosted us for our annual end of season ball which was fantastic! Everyone had a great night. The three course meal was lovely- we had carrot and coriander soup, roast chicken with vegetables and potatoes, and chocolate cake for desert. The DJ was great and everyone loved him. This was our second consecutive year at the City... More

City rooms hosted us for a classy event and had a great atmosphere and beautiful interior. We had a three course meal which everyone enjoyed especially the chocolate sponge pudding which one attendee was quoted as saying "the best pudding I have ever eaten". We then moved onto a DJ dance and the DJ knew our music preferences instantly and... More

My husband and I booked two nights to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The staff were very helpful, the surrounding beautiful. Our room was large and very comfortable and the bathroom also very large with a wonderful shower. The continental breakfast was varied and very filling. Our first night was quiet and peaceful. The next day, on our actual anniversary, we... More

I recently have started to use The City Rooms for business and have many event scheduled for the year ahead. The staff are very well presented and smartly dressed with their hair tied back. The food is presently impeccably and is extremely flavoursome! I have added some photo's from our menu as they had done a special menu for our... More

Went to a graduation ball here. The venue was beautiful, I love the high ceilings and the desired materials. The staff were unobtrusive and very helpful, nothing was to much trouble and all done with a smile. The only issue I could have was the food, I am vegetarian and I know it's not easy to cook pasta for a... More

I attended my cousins wedding here last month and I can honestly say it was one of the best wedding venues I have been too. I'm surprised by the recent reviews and can honestly say do not listen to them! There was around 150 people attend my cousins wedding and had a sit down 4 course meal and evening buffet.... More
