This hotel is ideally placed for visitors to RSC theatres, just across the road. It has been extensively refurbished to a high standard, but retains some of the quirks of the original building. Reception staff were not particularly welcoming, but all others were excellent: efficient and pleasant. The generous breakfast, with waiter service, was perfect - even the tricky problem of getting boiled and poached eggs just right seems to have been solved. Lunchtime light meals were also of high quality, as was the evening meal, though with limited menu. Timing is critical for theatre-goers, and that was taken into account. We also thought the meals were very reasonably priced. The rooms suffer somewhat from the alterations that have taken place, and some are a strange shape. However, the new bathrooms are large and pristine, and beds new and very comfortable with more pillows than you could ever need! There is only one room suitabled for visitors with a physical disability. Anyone who cannot walk too far should check where their proposed room is situated, as some are a long way from Reception. Overall, a very satisfactory place to stay, in a beautiful setting overlooking the Avon.
