Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 November 2008

We've just got back from a nights stay at the Tower House hotel. From reading others reviews we thought it was worth a visit and we weren't disappointed. We were looking for a central hotel that had a bit of character and this hotel delivered 100% on both fronts.

We stayed in the Jade room which overlooked one of the university colleges. The bed was comfortable, the room had lots of character with period touches and the bathroom was tastefully decorated with slate tiles and a good power shower.

The hotel offers a continental breakie and we were expecting some croissants but we got toast, a good choice of cereals and yogurts, cheeses and hams so we were happy with the choice.

The hotel is literally a few hundred yards from the high st but on a quiet road so you have the best of both worlds. There were some nice looking cafes a few doors from the hotel which if we'd have had more time world definitely have tried.

Would highly recommend a stay at this hotel, you really feel part of the historic city and staff were very welcoming. Enjoy! and thanks to everyone who reviewed the hotel and tempted us to visit.
