My wife and I went for a short break in October half term week.
Initial impression is stong and the owner helped us park our car in the small car park at the rear of the hotel. The building is architecturally impressive and the public rooms high ceilinged and airy.
Our room in the basement was ok - it was clean, functional and everything worked well but it was slightly opressive. Small disappointments included the brilliantly sodium lit facade of the building meant there was more light in the room at night than we are used to and the sound of an internal drain waking me at 6.30am.
Breakfast was good if a bit chaotic on one morning.
The position of the hotel is superb being close to Byers Road and the Botanical Gardens and museums.
Overall it was very good value and I would stay again but maybe it is a little overrated in some reviews?
