Excellent service, quality rooms, amazing victorian themed bathrooms, friendly staff, brilliant central location... and with prices barely above that of your cheap lodge-type hotels, what are you waiting for? Top marks all round.

Finding a hotel in central Peterborough is a bit of a lottery - they all have ideas of price that are too high, so finding one at a good price is not to be turned down. This visit I was upgraded to a room with a four poster bed and amazing huge bathroom with both a good shower and a... More

You'd think a hotel right next to a train station would be noisy and potentially lacklustre, but this is one of the best hotels I've staying in this year. A great 1920's feel about it, loved the ambience. Food in the restaurant was fantastic, and every member of staff I had to deal with was courteous and friendly. Highly recommend... More

However the rooms were all incredibly stuffy at... More

In need of a real update and refurb and also needs to offer room service. Arrived after ten and couldn't get anything to eat at all so thankfully Dominos delivers. Given its a city centre hotel and on a main train line opposite you'd expect room service. Rooms clean but old fashioned and in need of so real spruce up.
