First the hotel and staff: The staff were so lovely and friendly and couldn't do enough for you. They must have heard every stupid question under the sun but still managed to deal with it with a smile on their faces and a huge dollop of good grace. The reception staff were lovely as were the staff in the breakfast room and the chamber staff as well - everyone was delightful and always had a friendly word or a laugh with you - so welcoming!
The room: a basic double room - nothing fancy but very comfortable - very clean and actually one of the cleanest hotel rooms I have seen for a while. The only two things I would take them up with are that the heater seemed to go off during the day and the room was quite cold and there was no wall socket for a plug near the bed. In this day and age with mobile phones, etc one would think that would be the most obvious thing to have.
Breakfast: So much I couldn't eat it all and the costs were actually very reasonable - porridge was very good too!
Downside: Parking! The car park next door to the hotel costs £14 per 24 hours - you get a £2 discount from the hotel reception, although this didn't work for me the second time round and I paid the full amount but, because the staff were so good, I didn't really want to cause any hassle for the sake of £2. It would be good if the hotel and car park were to offer a much lower discount - TIP: If you are going here there are spaces for parking in the road opposite the car park and it is much cheaper but it is on a meter and be careful to get back there in the proper time.
Oh, and if you are going to the King's Theatre - it is a 2 minute walk away - ideal!
