    Great location a bit pricey during Festival in August. Would stay there again due to the excellent staff and location.

    The reception area is lovely and the staff were absolutely first class. They are, without doubt, the best thing about this hotel. Friendly, helpful, courteous. Nothing is too much trouble for them. The location is amazing. We sampled the food and cocktails in the bar. Really good.

    Once you get past reception (and the key public areas) the property feels a little tired. One of the lifts was always out of action. The room was nice (I had booked a superior) but the bathroom was very small and tired with marks on the walls and the extractor fan was full of dust. I think for such a central location (and price) I would be getting something a little more luxurious for my money. I had booked this as a treat for my mum’s 70th birthday and was a little disappointed.

    Great location. Amazing staff. Clean. Beautiful. Comfortable.

    If you have a car, parking difficult. However, you don’t need a car.
