We stayed at Trents for two nights while visiting friends on holiday at a nearby resort and found it almost perfect for our purposes. We intend to return for a longer stay and hope to have the same room. It is close to the rail station and right in the city centre, with many buses out of the city stopping right outside the door!
We had room 1, small but well-equipped, at the front of the building. Décor was good, room and shower room clean, and a fridge with included mineral water and orange juice was a nice touch, as well as the usual tea and coffee. Free wifi was simple to use and very fast and we made extensive use of it for finding out about the local area. The bed was extremely comfortable and sleep easy.
The room had a tendency to get hot if curtains were left open on a sunny day, so we asked the chambermaid to keep them closed and it was then fine (an electric fan had been provided, too). we are used to town-centre living and were not unduly disturbed by noise from the street even though we left the window open all night. My one small criticism was that it was a bit short on storage space: the wardrobe was half taken up by the fridge and drinks-making equipment and the drawers were all very small. We coped by leaving some things in our cases (in an English summer you always have some things you don't need because you have to allow for any weather!), and there was space to store the cases.
Staff were friendly, hard-working and helpful: even though they clearly had a lot to do they were always pleasant and made us feel that we mattered to them. Breakfast was included in our room rate: the breakfast was great, obviously cooked to order and probably the best English Breakfast I've had anywhere. I had the "lighter option" and it still kept me going most of the day!
Thoroughly recommended, especially for anyone using public transport.
