Firstly let me say I've stayed in some very nice hotels and some proper dumps and tho this isnt the best hotel I've ever been in I still rate it as brilliant, and cost wise absolutely outstanding value for money. We had a family room for me, my wife n 2 kids (7 & 8), the room (109) contained a king double and a normal double, but for some reason the 7 year old insisted in sleeping on the large couch with the spare bedding. The room itself was large with a lovely new bathroom and all round new decor.
If I had to pick faults I'd say the ceiling in the room and bathroom was quite marked (seriously who cares!) and maybe a bedside table and reading light for both sides of the king would help ( and more cups!) .
One morning our room wasn't made up which only mattered cos no more coffee milk n biscuits were left but one quick call to reception and it was sorted in minutes and I would stay here again without hesitation.
The hotel itself has a nice bar with lots of TVs, a pool table and a cosy library , as well as a restaurant. Our room was above the bar and u could hear the music below but it always stopped just after 11 and the kids never noticed it anyway.
Upon arrival we had chocolates n wine in the room which we didn't expect, lovely touch. You may think the hotel is too out the city but the main road into town is 200 yards across a lovely park and there are lots of buses (11,15,16) that'll take you right in n bring you right back (family ticket 7-50 for the day).
On our last day rather than ask the hotel to mind the luggage until our train that evening , we went to the national museum for the day (£1 a bag for the day).
My only regret with the hotel is we didn't eat there, and I've only mentioned the trivial negatives to highlight how good the place is, 3 nights for a family room for £187! Didn't include breakfast but lots of great cafes on the main road in, walk a couple of hundred yards , eat then get the bus (purple pig does a good breakfast)
Great hotel n excellent value n great , helpful, friendly staff.
Some lovely hotels in the center but to be honest I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again
