I booked The Tower Hotel for a long overdue break for my husband and I as we'd had to cancel our holiday plans earlier this year due to ill health. When we arrived we were told we had been upgraded (I thought this was because I had requested a quiet room) to a Smart Room which to be fair was more than adequate. We were at the front of the hotel facing Reginalds Tower, there being no air-con we left the window open so it wasn't too warm in the night. This however meant that the full effect of all traffic noise and the people at the smoking area below was coming our way. The traffic noise was horrendous from about 5.30 am on Monday morning so I'd recommend to anyone intending to stay there who likes to sleep in the morning to request a room on another side.
There were lots of positives - the staff were all extremely helpful and friendly. We spent some time in the pool and jacuzzi. We ate in the bar twice and the food was good, we were served by a very friendly young chap who recommended a pub to go to for music. As a big tea drinker,I love the fact that they gave you mugs to make your tea and coffee in the room rather than fiddly little cups and even paper cups to make a take away.
One other niggle I have is that smokers seem to congregate at the front door of the hotel, it's quite off putting as you arrive to have to try and make your way through groups of people who don't seem to realise they're in your way. I'm sure it's not just us who found that it gave a negative first impression. I would return to the Tower but would be more picky about my room options.
