I chose the hotel because it was an easy water-side walk to the SS Great Britain on which my sister-in-law celebrated her eightieth birthday at a lunch party for about thirty people.
My wife and I spent two nights in the hotel. We were impressed with the excellent quality of the food and drink in the restaurant and the bar, and we were impressed with the excellent standards and courtesy of the staff. The lounge provided a pleasant meeting place for various members of the families, and we used the facilities of the bar extensively. On one occasion six of us dined in the restaurant.
My daughter and her son from Belgium also stayed in the hotel, so the occasion provided a relaxed time for conversation.
The two nights we spent in the hotel were particularly warm, and we would have liked to sleep with the windows open but the noise from the merry-makers on the water-side below made this impossible. However, the double-glazed windows successfully shut out the noise and the air-conditioner in the bedroom kept the temperature at a comfortable level.
The shower outlet was overhead, and this was a slight problem as my wife's hair styling needed protection. In the absence of a shower-cap, my wife improvised with her toilet-bag.
Overall, the hotel helped to make the weekend a memorable and enjoyable experience for my wife and myself, and about twenty other people from the birthday lunch party.
