We stopped here for one night to break up a long South/North journey. This is an excellent hotel and I would recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in Hereford.
We had the Charles II Suite, a very large room on the second floor of the main hotel building. It was made up of a very large lounge area, big bedroom and big bathroom. All spotless, superbly furnished and equipped and incredibly comfortable. Lovely views down toward the Cathedral and towards the river. We had an excellent night of sleep and the bed was very, very comfortable.
The hotel itself isn't big. Is an old, Georgian (?) building and has been decorated in a nice mix of modern and older styles that really blend together. The staff were first class, really welcoming, professional and friendly.
We had dinner in the restaurant. An excellent meal (starters of "Pork" and scallops both full of flavour and presented superbly - main courses of rib eye steak and beef fillet, both excellent and then a panna cotta (my wife thought this the star of the show) and cheese board - a good choice), up there with some of the best we have had we agreed. Great service and a lovely evening.
Hereford itself was a real surprise. We must have been through in many times but never stopped. We always thought it looked a bit boring, bit dull and down at heel. Well, we were very wrong. You don't get to see the heart of the city if you pass through in the car. You miss an excellent shopping area with a great mix of buildings, pubs and shops, a wonderful river and park and a beautiful cathedral. You also miss a town full of friendly, welcoming people. Brilliant place.
