A great experence from start to finish. The centre of the City situation was ideal and only a hop and a skip from the station. The staff were excellent - there, but not there; helpful, willing and what is more, smiling and they all seemed genuinely happy in their work which is not always the case in some hotels. The room was spacious and very well appointed - the only criticism would be that it looked over a flat roof inhabited by rather too many pigeons - I think I am now an authority on their behaviour (not pleasant - pigeon breast on the menu will now be quite a turn-off!) .
We enjoyed a delicious meal in the restaurant on the first night - very relaxing and the breakfasts were, I think, the 2nd best ever eaten (the 1st being in Tasmania so no competition there). We would certainly return and hope to do so next year and would definitely recommend the Hotel to our friends and family.
