Hotel's Favorite
This is a very comfortable, quiet hotel with a funky colourful decor. My bedroom was beautifully furnished and stocked with complimentary water, tea and coffee (machine and pods), gin and sherry. There was also a minibar. I enjoyed a lovely treatment in the spa also. The hotel is located in the old town just a few steps from St Nicholas market which is great for browsing, shopping and eating. There are lots restaurants and bars close by too.

Stayed as a couple, we opted for the nicest rooms and were impressed - good size with a comfy bed. Service was generally good and breakfast was fab. We were quite disappointed by the late check out charge - £10 an hour when the hotel was fairly empty was a bit of an insult. Also neither lift was working for most of our stay, which was frustrating.

Stayed overnight on a visit to celebrate my birthday. They were kind enough to give us a free room upgrade, along with some chocolate cake and strawberries as a birthday treat. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. There was complimentary teas, coffee, hot chocolate, biscuits, gin and sherry - brilliant choice. The breakfast also had a great deal of choice, the food was good quality and the staff were very attentive and friendly. The location is very central, so close to everything. The downside of this is that there is some noise from the road and nearby businesses. We visited the spa (we were advised to book a slot due to Covid regulations) which was small, but clean with all necessary precautions in place. The staff in the spa were also very friendly and helpful. Another reassuring precautionary measure in place at the hotel is the temperature checker at the entrance - fully automated, they also offer free masks to guests. Sadly an issue with the boiler system meant we had no hot water on the morning of checkout, which was obviously very inconvenient. However the staff were very apologetic and keen to compensate us for this. We were offered money back from the cost of our stay. Although a major issue for us, the customer service from the staff was fantastic and I would still consider staying here the in future.

My treatments were really great and I loved the pool and jacuzzi. BUT - they forgot to give Prosecco on arrival so had to ask for that and got it midway through. The robe was too small and the flip flops were about 6 sizes too big for me! (Bit of a hazard) But the main thing that really let it down is that no water was available! I understand they need to be covid secure but I also think that it was WARM whilst getting my massage, the hydro pool and whole area was really warm and I just think they have a duty of care to give people a free bottle of water in their bags. If they cannot provide this then they should email customers to tell them to bring their own! I felt light headed after 1.5 hours as I needed water. Luckily they brought one along with my Prosecco. I am Breastfeeding at the moment so maybe I do get dehydrated quickly but I have been to many spas where there is a constant supply of water so didn’t think otherwise. It may seem like such a tiny problem but it turned my relaxing afternoon into a bit of an uncomfortable one.
