After hours of trawling through various hotel websites and Trip Advisor I finally settled on Drakes, and I wasn't disappointed. It's not cheap at £200 for the one of the kingsize city facing rooms but I fell in love with the place. The room was massive, had everything you needed and was spotless with a very comfy bed, the only negative to the room was the blind wasn't great at keeping out the light in the morning. We barely heard any noise coming from the other rooms/rest of the hotel, even in the morning. The bathroom (which is down some stairs!) had a heated floor and amazing shower. We didn't eat in the restaurant as wanted to get out and about. The staff were extremely welcoming and helpful. Only downside was the £12.50 parking charge, however the staff very kindly let us stay parked there for several hours after we'd checked out which saved trying to hunt down a space in one of the city car parks on a Saturday! We will definitely be staying here again, I'd be tempted to try one of the rooms with the free standing bath next time! This is definitely a hotel perfect for couples.
