I had a special offer from Secret Escapes in which I selected to have dinner in the Brasserie, therefore expected that I would be given dinner without any further charges only to have it pointed out to me that all that was available was the meat course on a small selection of meals and you had to pay for the extras. They did offer £25 discount on the main menu. The food was good but a tad expensive but I suppose if you are more used to this grade of hotel then it probably wouldn't seem that way.
The room was quite nice with a 6ft (two 3ft joined together) bed, which was quite comfortable but it overlooked Eastgate and being the main thoroughfare for pedestrians and shoppers it did not provide much in the way of peace and quiet, buskers playing till quite late (some good some not so), drunken revelry in the early hours and then vehicular traffic, mainly vans and lorries delivering to the nearby shops from early morning. The bathroom was small but adequate with a shower over the bath and the shower head needed some attention as it wasn't flowing well. Forgot to mention this to reception. Very nice and well stocked mini bar but also well overpriced.
This was my first time staying in a 5 star hotel and although it was nice, I maybe should not get above my station in life as I could have had 5 nights elsewhere say in a Premier Inn (which are just as comfortable and also have hairdryers) for what it cost me here. It all depends on whether you want all the trimmings or not.
