From the moment we arrived with our friends we knew we had made the right choice. Arrival at reception was friendly, warm and efficient. The receptionist explained the ‘home from home’ concept to us and they certainly lived up to that. I can’t praise the reception staff too much, they were friendly and helpful, advising on places to eat, phoning up and making the booking and even printing off the map and directions. We had a canal view room complete with Nespresso coffee machine, DVD player (DVDs to borrow from reception with a deposit), TV with free movie channels, slippers, dressing gown, safe, ironing board (thankfully not needed) and even a UK socket. Drinks, whisky gin and brandy in decanters (again unused on this trip) and a small mini bar with a beer, soft drinks, mixers and water. Breakfast - very pleasant breakfast room serving a variety of foods for most tastes. Eggs cooked to order and your liking, with crispy bacon and sausages, pancakes, breads, cheese, ham, croissants, cereal, fruit, yogurt etc etc. Yum! The Lounge – we loved it. Free bar with beers, wine, spirits, softies, water, coffee machine and a selection of nibbles and sweets. This was kept we stocked and serviced by the reception staff and is an excellent place to sit and relax at any time. There are both ipads and 2 PCs connected to a printer for guest use – great for online check in. Free wi fi as well, with a great signal. They also have wooden bikes for hire. I didn’t, but they fascinated me for the whole weekend. Location wise, there is a bit of traffic noise as you might reasonably expect from a city centre location, but this didn’t significantly affect sleep. Very well placed for the flower market, Rembrandt Square, Foam and the tram. Overall we were delighted and could find little (can’t think of ANYTHING) to fault. I want to go back – now! Thank you all at the Banks Mansion :-)
