We checked into the hotel early evening and were informed we had been given a room in the apartments opposite the hotel. Initially I was a little worried that we had been given a "downgrade", however my initial fears were unfounded. We were given the keys to an stylish old looking building over the road from the Pavilion which housed several self contained self catering apartments. The apartment consisted of a living room with tv, dvd and cd player, with a sofa/sofa bed. The bathroom led off from a little kitchen area comprising of mini hob, microwave, fridge, sink and a small range of cooking implements!. Then at the back of the apartment was the bedroom with another tv, albeit with no remote control. On our first evening we dined at Langtons restaurant which was pricey, but the food and service was good. I do get a little miffed however at paying over £16 for a main course then having to pay extra for vegetables. The following evening we ate more cheaply at the Saddle Inn a few hundred yards away, the food was standard pub fare but quite acceptable and for £8 I had a large fish and chips with salad and mushy peas.
The hotel is located on a main road with buses going into the city regularly, however we chose to walk in via the riverside walk(avoiding the flooded areas) which took about 20 minutes. Our stay was pleasant, and the room acceptable, however our apartment looked a little on the tired side. The bathroom felt old, and the towels were a little threadbare. I booked the break through Tesco deals and overall was pleased with the value of the break.
