FIRST AND FOREMOST: MAKE ABSOLUTELY SURE THAT IF USING A BOOKING SITE YOU DONT INADVERTENTLY GET SENT TO AND BOOK A SIMILARLY NAMED 3* hotel on outskirts of city!!! We did.....let us tell you how the real Canal House saved the day (and my wife's birthday weekend treat!)
We arrived relatively late on a Thursday evening due to the wind storms in the uk. Using a very well known booking site (which I use regularly) it pushed us to a similarly named new hotel that I booked all the while thinking if booked Canal House!
We had no booking!
Apart from being disorientated by this and briefly and wrongly deciding to go to the other hotel (which we did by cab and did an immediate about turn back to Canal House), we we're re-greeted with total grace and elegance by the gent and lady in duty (5/12/13) who organised a room for us in thurs and fri (leaving us without a room sat) - that was great for now.
The room was in the eves of the roof and was unique and quirky and beautifully appointed: look at the website it's wonderfully decorated
The tour of the room features was comprehensive and the toiletries to use during your stay were very nice too.
The artwork really compliments the atmosphere of the establishment and the staff were superb.
TO THE MANAGEMENT - please thank the chap with specs and the lady with blonde hair. He accommodated us a late evening snack in the lounge and she rang round similar hotels to try and sort our Saturday evening accommodation: both a credit to the hotel.
Location is perfect. On the emperors canal in the classiest part of town: perfect for couples and growing families.
Unreservedly recommended and with thanks for making our stay so chic and memorable
