This Hotel is in an excellent location, close to city centre and major attractions. The Hotel is on four floors and we had a room on the top floor at the rear of the Hotel. The view from our room was over some lovely gardens, trees and parkland. In the morning we were delighted to see many wild birds such as Goldfinches, magpies, wood pigeons and many others. The room was basically furnished and the ensuite toilet and shower was very small, but everything was spotlessly clean.
I had some problems with the stairs due to knee problem and would imagine that this hotel would not be suitable to persons with mobility problems.
Breakfast was served in a nicely laid out room on the ground floor and there was an extensive array of fruit juice, cereals, fruit etc. Also a large choice of cooked breakfast available. All in all very good value for money.
We would certainly recommend this Hotel which is in a perfect location, has spectacular views and is spotlessly clean.
Only drawbacks we encountered were that parking between 0830-1730 is restricted to 4 hours and quite pricey. The lack of lifts would be a problem to those with mobility problems.
We also thought that the spare fold up beds on the uppermost landing were unsightly and should perhaps have been stored out of sight.
Again we would have no hesitation in recommending this Hotel. The price we paid was most certainly worth every penny, and our stay was most enjoyable.
