We booked via Secret Escapes for the first time - we will definitely be booking again via this site! The hotel was relatively easy to find with a satnav and observant passenger!! (look out for the signs for the Selfridges car park)
Little bit of a walk down the hill to the hotel (thus back up the hill to get into the city centre), and on the edge of a redeveloped area so I wouldn't feel safe walking around late at night as a female/two females alone but was fine with my boyfriend.
We tried checking in with the self service machine but it didn't work, receptionist very friendly and helpful to check in for us.
Room was fab!! Modern, classy, clean with large double bed, walk in shower, speakers in the bathroom, lovely smelling toiletries, cool touch screen telephone which doubles up as a "welcome" folder with all hotel/local info etc available electronically.
Although we didn't eat in the restaurant in the evening, we went for nightcap cocktails. Service was particularly slow (one cocktail waiter on a Saturday night with most people in the bar ordering them!) but it was quite a relaxed atmosphere anyway.
Breakfast the next day was very busy but there was lots of choice and was tasty; staff running about to catch if needed tea/coffee. A sneaky chocolate muffin with truffle centre taken for after breakfast was divine!!
Would recommend to friends and family and would definitely stay again!!
