Lovely hotel, very elegant inside and out, superb location for walking the waterfront, very close to the cathedral, the ferries and the old town. Parking 12.50 a day, but worth it for the amazing location. Visiting the SS Great Britain is a nice waterside walk or a ferry ride from just across the street. Friendly courteous hotel staff - providing excellent poached eggs at breakfast! Very elegant public rooms - spectacular ballroom, lovely drawing rooms and the bar opening onto large courtyard with palms. The bar and ballroom had private events on friday and sat when I was there, but you walk between them to reach the lifts, which was amusing, and there was always somewhere else to sit in the drawing rooms. Very well thought out comfortable room, free wifi, and express checkout very convenient. Thanks to other reviewers for recommending an upper floor! Good tip - the hotel is so close to harbourside, that side of the street is very busy and noisy *all* night, and the hotel also had a loud prom and wedding band in the ballroom until midnight. We still had a peaceful stay - our room on the 4th floor facing into the courtyard was lovely and quiet, and you can turn off the aircon. Anyway my parents reported they also slept well despite being on the first floor facing all the bars on the waterside, so the double glazing must be pretty good! They reported when they looked out the street was busy til 6am and beyond, but it did not disturb their rest at all. Did not try any dining apart from breakfast, which was excellent.
