We originally booked to stay at the Pilgrims Hotel well in advance due to its proximity to a special event at the Marlowe Theatre. However, as late as 9.30pm on the night before, we were telephoned by the management to hear that our romantic four poster bedroom was no longer available and that we would have to stay at the sister hotel (the Victoria) which was another 20 minutes walk further out of the city. By this time, we did not have time to book another hotel nearer to the theatre. The Victoria hotel was more of a ‘Travelodge’ type place with none of the character of the Pilgrim. It was very tired in decor, and there were some rough looking people in the bar. The hotel kindly compensated us by giving us a family room and paying for our taxi to get to the Marlowe, but this did not compensate for the disappointment we felt . If you are booking with the Pilgrim, do check well in advance that your booking is still available, however, we won't be booking with the Pilgrims Hotel again.
