I had stayed here a couple of times when it was the Camden and the new ownership and face lift is a pleasant improvement.
The satff were great and quick to point out the improvements. The overall appearance is much better, the decor bright and fresh and the rooms vastly improved.
I was quickly informed that booking sites do not offer a breakfast in their package and advised that by contacting the hotel direct they will include breakfast for the same price.
The breakfast was a better than average cooked offering, however the sausage was one of those incipid pink things. Come on Mercahnt house go to the butchers, it makes all the difference.
The hotel is under the same ownership as the Mannings hotel and restaurant and you can claim a free glass of wine if you eat at Mannings. Mannings is a 5 minute walk down the hill.
I will stay again.
