Lots of good things about the Churchill, but also lots of negatives.
The good things centre around its location, just a short walk from the city walls and all the tourist attractions. Second is its free car park, but beware - if you arrive during a wedding or Rotary Club lunch, you will have no chance in getting in, and you will be left parking in an expensive council car park! Staff are very good in general, and in particular the waitress who served us dinner the night we stayed. The evening meal we had in the restaurant was first class.
The main negative is the very small rooms, and even smaller bathroom. Getting in and out of the shower meant bumping elbows, shoulders, and anything else that got in the way. No complimentary shampoo, just shower gel. The breakfast was OK, but look out for the tiniest sausage you will ever see on a breakfast plate - just two inches long, and only one of them!
You won't be able to leave your car after you check out at 11, especially if there is a wedding on.
So a number of small niggles which detracted slightly from our expectations. However, overall four stars, and will return - but not during the wedding season!
