The Bel Air is a lovely hotel - pretty gardens and a lovely restaurant and big rooms. Overall the hotel is clean and extremely comfortable. Breakfast is lovely and the staff there are very friendly and welcoming.
We did have a problem on check-in as we arrived earlier than expected (3 hours earlier!) due to a very fast night bus driver. We didn't expect a room to be available as it was early hours of the morning, but we were told by the night porter that we didn't have a room for the next night. We then spent some time that morning trying to find a room for that evening, only to find when we returned that we did have a room booked. My advice if you're in that position - although the night staff may try to advise you, wait to speak with one of the day managers who are very helpful.
The only other slight negative is that the hotel is a very short walk away from the centre (approx 15-20 mins) which my husband and I don't mind. The only issue was that you have to cross a bridge to get there which is fine if you are fine we heights (we are) and that it is very slippy after rain shower. My husband who is extremely fit and active slipped in the dark on the way back to the hotel and sprained his ankle badly.
That aside it really is a very nice hotel.
