I had read negative reviews of this property before visiting and so had felt put off. I needn't have. I throroughly enjoyed my stay. Many reviewers talk about the hotel needing a refurb. OK, so the interior of this property does not look brand new, it clearly had its last refurb some while ago, but that doesn't make it a bad hotel. The reception area and ground floor of this hotel is elegant and attractive. I felt the room was a tad on the small side, but not overly so, probably fairly average for a UK hotel. The decor was slightly dated, perhaps but not unattractive as such. One thing that struck me about the room was that lighting could have been a tad better. The bathroom was elegant and the shower top notch (always important in my view) Apart from a bit of door slamming in the corridor, I was not disturbed by noise in this hotel. The bedding and pillows were very nice and the bed comfort was decent (I am extremely fussy on bed comfort) The reception staff stood out as being very very welcoming, helpful and friendly. They were very knowledgeable and couldn't have done more to make my stay pleasant, some of the best receptionists in the business, in my opinion, very slick and professional. I had a full breakfast one morning and the staff were friendly but the breakfast was average, no better. (I am a bit fussy when it comes to breakfasts!) I found the location of this hotel to be fabulous, with many great bars, shops and eateries nearby, and within walking distance of the city centre. I hope this review helps you decide whether to stay here or not, DON'T believe the seething negative reviews of this hotel, the interior is not brand new but it was clean and tidy and attractive enough and the staff are superb. Remember this is a family owned hotel, not part of a giant chain.
