We booked a fixed price, non cancellable, room for a good price, given the location and quality of the hotel. Friendly staff at Reception offered us an 'upgrade' - a bigger room on a higher floor. it was actually designed for disabled access, which meant the washbasin in the bathroom was rather low, but a minor point which didn't inconvenience us. Pluses - good location. Excellent, large, very comfortable bed, well fitted out room, lovely bathroom with a very powerful shower, good big towels and nice toiletries. Decent amount of hanging space in the cupboard, room well lit, decent mirrors, sensibly located, well stocked and reasonably priced mini bar. Minuses - the rest of the bedroom furniture was pretty poor quality, as were the sofas/armchairs in the bar, thin, worn cushions don't make for a comfortable place to sit and chill. The powerful shower is installed in such a way that half the bathroom floor is covered with water whilst showering, no matter how we rearranged the shower curtain - fellow guests mentioned the same issue. Hairdryer fixed inside a drawer with a button you have to hold down with your thumb to use - a regular annoyance and I'd have expected better from an up market hotel of this kind. Although mentioned briefly on the website, I was surprised to be asked for photo ID on check in - we didn't have any, and this isn't a legal requirement in UK as far as I know. Choice of wine by the glass in the bar isn't great, and the glass of water I requested simply never materialised. Service, generally, is efficient but a bit impersonal. Generally, very happy with our stay and would definitely recommend. We didn't use the spa or have breakfast although continental breakfast was included in our rate.
