We were booked into the Davenport and initially I was very disappointed to be told we were booked in somewhere else. I went round the corner to the Alex. and was still not very appy but the staff were friendly and my view of the reception area was that it was smart and what I would expect from this standard hotel. The room was a good size and the beds were so comfy! The lovely snuggly duvets made the beds even better. The aircon,. which is often dodgy in hotels was efficient and quiet. The bathroom was a little small and some areas a little worn but it had everything including a superb shower and lovely products. The towels were clean, white and large which is always a bonus. Breakfasts were very good, a buffet style with bacon, eggs etc. as well. Wonderful array of breads and pastries.
The staff were very friendly especially the bar staff who looked after us and two lovely ladies who went there every week for tea and sandwiches.
I was initially not happy about where the hotel was situated but it turned out to be a real plus as it was within walking distance of nearly everything you would need to see on a short visit to the city including the parks.
We had a great few days and I would definitely stay there again when I returned.
