Lovely hotel. We had room 121A which was actually two rooms merged into one making it a lovely suite for the same cost of a standard twin room. This meant we had a large shower wet room, cloak room, nice lounge area, and separate twin bedroom. The trip was for business so we were early out and late back in each day. Issues to consider are:
a) No blackout curtains meaning the few hours of darkness you get during the summer are rudely interrupted by a very early sunrise.
b) Parking is a nightmare as once the reception closes at midnight or earlier at the weekend, then you cannot get the key fob from reception to enter the carpark. We found that the only way to park was send someone down into the carpark, wedge the door to be able to get back in (as you also need to buz reception to get back through to the stairwell) and then press the code to vacate the carpark from the inside which opens the garage door. Nightmare!
Plus side however was the room was recently refurbished, nice and clean and tidy (par rusty dirty pipes exposed int he shower). Breakfast was excellent with a large selection of continental offerings plus tasty bacon and scrambled eggs. also our view was of a lovely old building I think something to do with the colleges or university as our first night saw a large graduation ceremony with all the students appearing in suits and white dresses with captain hats on! This also meant we had a beautiful view of the lake between the buildings.
Overall would recommend this hotel, close to the city center and had nothing to complain about although there were the few annoying factors to consider.
