From other reviews about this hotel, I gathered that the secret is to get a good room. Well, we were lucky - we had a lovely room. The only drawback is that once you get beyond the reception, dining and bar area, the decor is in need of updating and our room was no exception. I read on another review that the hotel has been taken over fairly recently over by a couple and we could therefore reasonably assume that it is a work in progress and that in time, the whole hotel will look as good as the ground floor.
As other reviewers have remarked, location is in a quiet residential area which means no noise at nights. It is also only a short walk into the city in one direction and a short walk to Pittville Park in the opposite direction.
We found the staff very friendly and obliging, a refreshing change from the formulaic approach of the chain hotels. The breakfast experience was good, with a comprehensive range of choices and beautifully cooked and presented hot food.
I would definitely stay at this hotel again. I would love to visit when the decor has been brought fully up to date!More
