Location of this hotel was excellent (I was visiting the university and it is literally across the road), with free parking (always a bonus for city centre hotels)! I stayed in a twin room which was basic and quite small, but adequate for my needs for the stay. Our room didn't have ensuite facilities but the toilet and shower was next door (and just for our use), so this wasn't a particularly big problem. The water didn't go down the sink or shower though (well it did, eventually), which was a problem, especially in the shower as it was very close to overflowing. The bathroom overall was clean enough but the shower could have done with a thorough clean and maybe an update. The room was adequately clean - not sparkling - but it wasn't dirty. The hotel is such a lovely building that I think has much more potential, with an update to the rooms and a good clean I think this hotel would be so much better. Price was reasonable for a city centre hotel with parking (£45 a night for a twin room). Breakfast is very expensive though and I wouldn't recommend. £5 for a selection or cereal, toast, croissants and english breakfast (which isn't really an english breakfast at all because they don't serve meat). So basically I paid £5 for scrambled egg and beans on toast and safe to say after day one of breakfast I chose to go elsewhere for the remainder of my stay. Overall - you get what you pay for. If you are expecting an excellent hotel then pay more and go elsewhere, if you're happy on a budget then the hotel is ok.
