My girlfriend and I stayed over the Easter weekend for two nights and booked on Lastminute.com which gave us a much better price than other competitors.
Straight from getting out the car we were impressed. The valet service was excellent, made it much easier but at the same time is expensive. Being a city centre hotel where parking can be difficult it's worth the extra cost. Although if we go again we'll be getting the train as the station is a 5 minute walk away.
The hotel itself is a pleasure to be in with friendly staff and superb service. Our room was 211 a standard double but still very large with high ceilings, under floor heating in the bathrooms and a kingsize bed.
We never ate in the hotel however for an amazing breakfast Baileys Tea Rooms just over the bridge is a definite recommendation. For dinner The Red Chilli Chinese just round the corner is one of the best we've been to anywhere and both very reasonably priced.
We booked ourselves in for the couples spa treatments which were brilliant with great service from the staff down there. However the spa itself is pretty basic with just a pool, steam room, sauna and jacuzzi. No real seating or space to relax.
Overall the hotel is fantastic, we really enjoyed our stay and will be visiting again.
