I had booked for two nights at The Florence however upon arrival I was informed we would be staying over the road at The Somerset but would be returning to The Florence for breakfast. It was a mild inconvenience, as the weather was fine, but had I known this I would not have booked this hotel. I did book using an online booking site but spoke to the hotel prior to arrival where I could have been given this information. The bedroom and bathroom were stylish, clean and comfortable. There was an issue with the plumbing on the first night but it was dealt with quickly and as efficiently as possible with a bottle of wine thrown in by means of an apology. The staff were friendly, helpful and informative of the local area. The location is ideally situated for local attractions and a vast array of restaurants in Albert Rd approx ten minutes walk away. There was a good selection at breakfast which was all very tasty. Room service is efficient and reasonably priced. I would check as to where I was actually staying before booking here again though.
