Checked in on a rainy afternoon by a very pleasant young lady and went straight out shopping. Came back to the room to get ready for the night out and the room was very welcoming indeed. Everything clean and comfortable. The plumbing could use some attention - the loo flush wasn't very strong, the sink tap a bit stiff (and held together with gaffer tape) but the big shower head was fab.
I came back alone after midnight and there were still plenty of people about. Don't be put off by the reviews that say it is tucked away down an alley - it is secluded but but not dangerously so - access is bright and populated.
The curtains are good and thick so if you are scared of the dark you might want to leave a light on but for me they were perfect. The bed was by far the most comfortable hotel bed I ever slept on, four big plump pillows and soft sheets. Perfect.
On the down side I was woken several times (the last one around 5am) by returning drunken revellers but there is little the hotel could do about this - some people are always going to be inconsiderate/drunk. I was on the third floor and had no problem with ambient noise.
Awake early and slightly hungover I went down for a lovely breakfast. Greeted by genuinely pleasant staff (not too bubbly - who needs that at 7.30 with a bad head?) lots of choice - all you would expect from a full English, cereal, toast etc but also several fruit juices, an abundance of fruit including plump fresh figs (yum) and porridge. Only slight niggle - a refill of coffee would have been nice.
With a while to wait till the shops opened and my hangover refreshed I couldn't resist jumping back into that comfy bed for another snooze!
Check out was friendly and I left my bag with a pleasant chap to do more shopping before catching my train. A lovely hotel with pleasant staff and a warm atmosphere.
