Visiting the area for a wedding, we paid £185 for our room, but found a room that should have been priced in the £90 - £110 range
The service was friendly, but two fairly big complaints:
1. we arrived at 3:30pm (on a 2pm guaranteed check-in) and the room was not ready for us. That was very inconvenient given that we were dashing between wedding and reception.
2. Running water was sporadic the next day, and staff confirmed it was part of a long term problem
The room, and bathroom in particular, had been done up very nicely, but in a modern style with no period features. In particular the bed was huge and very comfortable, but it didn't change the fact that the room was small (the bed was over 50% of floor space) and faced a road with noisy traffic. The doorway into the bathroom is about 5'11" high. I am 6'1" and received a very sore head for my night-time bathroom visit, an unwelcome addition to my hangover!
Breakfast had its highs and lows, my fried eggs were cooked until the yokes were grey and powdery, again not conducive to hangover therapy, but the apple muffins were quite delicious.
This is a nice hotel but not exceptional. Features, views and location are OK but not special. A lot has been invested in a modern decor which is light and comfortable, and there is a friendly attitude from the staff. I probably would have given them 3 or 4 stars if we had paid £100 for this room, but at the price we paid I would not consider staying there again.
