I recently stayed at the Duke of Edinburgh for 3 nights whilst visiting the area for business. The hotel is very conveniently located just a few minutes walk from the train station. Check in was quick, easy and friendly. My room was on the first floor, and easily found by following the signs. The room (superior double) was clean and comfortable, with TV (with freeview) and a DVD player, tea and coffee making facilities, wardrobe with ample hanging space, a small desk and an armchair. The double bed was comfortable, with extra pillows available in the wardrobe. Free wifi is also available - the information book in the room stated that a cable was provided for internet access, but the internet is wireless, with no password required.
The bathroom was very large and clean with large bath and separate shower.
The heating in the room was controlled via a small thermostat next to the door, very efficient heating.
Breakfast was good, buffet style cereals and juices available, with hot breakfasts ordered from the menu, as well as tea/coffee and toast.
Evening meals in the restaurant were very good and good value for money, with excellent service. The restaurant also seemed to be very popular with non-residents, which I always think is a good sign!
I would definitely stay in this hotel should I be in the area again.
