Stayed here for four nights. My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location of the hotel is excellent, a short walk to the city centre, colleges, shops etc. There are many eateries within a hundred yards or so, and lots and lots in the city centre. Our room was in the newer extension towards the front of the hotel but we still had a view of the park. The walls are very thick, we couldn't hear anything from adjoining rooms, which is not always the case, the beds were comfy, good quality bedding, and the curtains were thick, keeping light out. There was a 'proper' kettle, not a flimsy plastic one, there was lots of storage space in the room, and there was free Wi-Fi throughout. The public areas of the hotel are beautiful, and the staff attentive. The choice and quality of the breakfasts were very good, and we also had food in the bar which was also good. Some of the reviewers on the site have mentioned noise outside overnight. Fair enough, Saturday night had noisy people passing by on the street, but every town and city centre in the land gets this. Blame the licensing laws and young people with little or no volume control, can't blame the hotel for this.
