Everything in the room was tidied away in the wardrobe, including the warm drinks tray. Unfortunately, while taking the tray out, I bumped my head on a badly placed shelf. My colleague, staying at the same time, also did the same in her room....a design fault if ever there was one. Also, there was a lack of sanitary disposal bags... More

Our 1st time back since all the work upgrading the bar, lounge and dining rooms has been completed and the public areas are now well worth a 4* rating (location helps as well).

Had a great weekend away at the Monkbar hotel. Staff were very helpful and went out of their way to make us feel welcome, especially Gary and Louise who guided us through their wonderful gin menu! Would recommend the gin with chilli. Room was very comfortable and food was excellent. Only point we would make is that it would be... More

Just outside the walls of the city, its An honest 5 minute walk into the "city" and you will find pleanty of places yo eat and drink near by. The staff... More
