I stayed here on a Travelzoo deal as a treat for my fiancé and having read these reviews I was dreading what was waiting for us. I needn't have worried.
The room (Easby) was beautiful, warm, modern and not at all spoilt by flaws in the plaster or windowsills as pointed out by a previous guest (seriously, who lets that affect their hotel experience??!!). A long soak in the roll top bath is highly recommended! The king size bed is sooooo comfy and the room is lovely and spacious.
One thing which was disappointing is the swimming pool. Based on previous reviews of it being out of action, I phoned up in advance to see if the pump had been fixed which it hadn't so I didn't even take my cozzie. I think until it's fixed and warm enough to swim in then guest should be made aware BEFORE booking as it was one if the main reasons I chose this hotel over a more basic city centre one. My fiancé used the gym and said it was a somewhat basic but he still managed to throw a few weights around.
The receptionist/waitress/bartender did an excellent job despite being rushed off her feet, and the three course evening meal was absolutely delicious. The tastiest creme brûlée I've ever had. I can't compliment the chef enough as the food was wonderful, and the same goes for the lovely and plentiful breakfast. A different host in the morning but very friendly and chatty.
I paid £109 on the Travelzoo deal which, with the three course meal for two, was about right given the lack of leisure facilities. A beautiful hotel, full of character and really tastefully decorated. Overall a lovely stay and would definitely return.
