I stayed in the Academy hotel on the bank holiday weekend on the 25th-26th May with my girlfriend.
Reception greeted us nicely enough as we arrived and promptly took our bags to our room. Our room was situated on the 3rd floor in a hotel which didn't have a lift. Not too much of a problem for myself and my girlfriend who are fit twenty-somethigns but I could imagine a tedious task otherwise.
The room itself was lavish with silky sheets and a nice ascetic feel. The bathroom was spacious and had a lovely large bath but felt aged and needed a bit of a touch up.
Room service was prompt and friendly and the quality of breakfast in bed was tremendous.
I would recommend this hotel but however be aware of some of the quirks that may hinder some such as the lack of a lift.
