I booked this hotel through booking.com in January for a stay 17th to 20th August for me and a friend. The booking information clearly said that free on site parking was available. What no body told us in advance was that this was changed in May, and that car parking has to be booked and I think there was a charge of about £5 per night, (but not 100% sure on that one). So, on arrival last Friday, we had to unload the car, then move the car up to Duchy Street then walk back to the hotel. It wasn't that far, but it was a bit of a pain.
However, our room was fine, a very good size with a table and two chairs and we overlooked The Royal Baths, so a lovely view. A good sized bathroom, but the shower was inconsistant, hot, then cold and no power in it. However, we also had a bath, which I made use of this morning. One of the windows in the bathroom wouldn't stay open, so we had to wedge it with empty drinks bottles. The room was hot, but the beds were comfy. A major downside, with it being a weekend was the noise from the all night revellers at the local night clubs. We couldn't shut the windows because it would have been too hot, but the revellers were still at it at 6 am! So if you can't stand noise, ask for a quiet room at the back somewhere. There was a wedding party in on the Saturday and that didn't disturb us at all.
They also ran out of bottles of sparkling mineral water!
The breakfast was good; cereals, fruit, yoghurts, croissants, toast, rolls to go with the cooked breakfast, which was very nice; only thing missing for me was mushrooms! The service with the tea/coffee at breakfast was a bit slow at times, but there was plenty of juice.
The pictures of the front of the hotel and the pool area are a bit misleading, but then most are.
Would I stay here again, probably yes, although I might look for something more in a back street.
