HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 25 March 2017 via mobile

I stayed for a weekend in between business meetings. There was everything right about my stay. Prompt and friendly check in, spacious and immaculately clean room, comfortable bed with a quiet night'a sleep are great starters. The hotel is in the heart of the city, yet only a mile from the train station. It was a tad tricky to navigate...

Right in the center. Rooms are big and comfortable. Breakfast buffet was great, good selection of food and fresh. Love the beacon and eggs. Staff are friendly. Much better than I expected. Not too far away from the train station, by taxi around 6 pounds, by bus maybe around 1.5 pounds.

We spent three nights at this hotel last week, chosen because it was the best-reviewed hotel close to the main attractions. We were especially interested in hearing choral services at King's and St. John's, and this hotel is ideally located for that. Room was extremely comfortable, public areas were well maintained, and all the staff very pleasant. Not quaint or...
