I stayed here for business and had been given a twin room.
The room was nicely decorated and had the ususal amenities but I had to call down for a robe as there was not one provided in my room. I was told that house keeping was closed but they would check. To be fair about half an hour later they knocked with a robe. It's a minor point but that's one of the things that make a four star hotel, robe and slippers which it states are included in your room on the website.
The bed wasn't very comfortable and the mattress was fairly lumpy. Luckily I could sleep on one made twin bed (for extra padding) and used the bed linen from the other bed.
The bathroom was very clean and a great shower. The usual toiletries were supplied.
It was quite a noisy room (single glazing on the window), I could hear the people / traffic on the street below and also the guests talking / watching telly next door.
The rate did not include breakfast which I think should be included considering the price for a mid week night (£119).
The hotel was centrally located and had a nice view from the window overlooking the park and church.
The staff on reception were very friendly and very helpful. I didn't try the bar so can not comment, but it looked inviting and a good choice of optics.
Overall I had a pleasent experience but I I would have rated this as very good but for the lack of sleep quality.
