The perfect base for for a city break
The staff and service were superb, our room was gorgeous, one of the very old rooms at the front of the hotel. there was traffic noise in the morning but more than we expected as we did, after all, choose to stay in a city centre hotel. The view over the street was lovely also. We loved the location of the hotel, right outside are cool bars, old pubs, excellent restaurants and 2 theatres. My one negative was the room chosen by the hotel to present breakfast. There would seem to be some much more pleasant and newly decorated rooms in the hotel.
