We arrived in the middle of Gay Pride week which took us by surprise. Very crowded and noisy streets but all good humoured. Banks Mansion locked their front door due to the activities on the street which made us feel very comfortable. There are endless supplies of complimentary drinks in the reception area and three decanters of whisky, rum and brandy in the room. We didn't avail ourselves of much of these treats!
The room was a good size and bathroom well appointed, although a heated mirror would have helped.
Pity there are no evening meal facilities in the hotel but there are plenty of restaurants nearby on the canals.
No need to hire a car since public transport is cheap, plentiful and efficient and the city is walkable by anyone of reasonable fitness.More
