We didnt stay in any of the feature rooms and my companions had specifically wanted an accessible room. There is a tiny old fashioned lift into which you can just get a disabled person and a carer in one go! They had a lovely spacious room and my single room had a newly fitted shower room which was gorgeous. The view from my single room was really pleasant, overlooking a pretty church and green, and the cutting edge design public loos...a plus, not a negative - different! For a single room it was very spacious.
The breakfast was great, served in the quirky, panelled dining room, with a good selection offered on the buffet table and fresh hot breakfast served at table. Excellent porridge.
The only down side was the noise in the morning, of delivery drivers pulling up and bins being emptied (very early) by the dust carts, with bins being drawn across the cobbles - bottle bins being emptied from the various pubs nearby. But that is only to be expected in the centre of town and if you are an early riser like me, it is just noisy rather than disturbing your sleep.
The surrounding streets and alleyways by the Hotel are lovely and quaint. We ate in the evening at Porterhouse, just around the corner on Dogpole (cute street names). Be sure to ask for the conservatory area as the bar area gets very loud.
