Simone L TripAdvisor review

Rooms were good, bed very comfortable, the room & the bathroom nice & clean Perfect location, but very noisy road However, for two mornings the tea tray was not restocked & a plastic bin bag full of rubbish left on bathroom floor Often no staff available You really need to look at your breakfast, the eggs were dreadful, limited hot choice, especially if you are vegetarian, no vegetarian sausages,none of the food covered at breakfast, very unhygienic,( the cheese slices were very dried out ) The dinner menu was the same every night & again limited vegetarian option - potato soup for starter - potato curry for main & the meat free burger, just a vegetable patty which for nearly £20 is not good value! Overall - accommodation good, food a let down

Outstanding location

David O Couples - TripAdvisor review

There is much to like about this hotel: its location, its city centre car park, the friendliness of its staff and the wonderful views of the cathedral from the large windows in the Executive rooms. However, as others have said, it does look and feel rather tired, although bedroom carpets and curtains have clearly been replaced recently. It would be great to think that further refurbishment will take place (previous responses suggest this is soon to happen) as there is no doubt the hotel has huge potential. We had an Executive room which was a good size and had everything we needed. We slept well in a comfortable bed although, again, the room felt dated. Little things, like cracked tiles on the bathroom floor, slightly spoiled what could have been a lovely room The buffet breakfast was a little disappointing. There was an adequate range of options for the continental element but the “cooked” food was unappetising; the scrambled eggs, in particular, looked like nothing we had seen before. We enjoyed sitting in the bar, but it didn’t seem to be consistently staffed, and we had to wait for some time for someone to appear before ordering drinks over our two night stay. But, when they did appear, they were delightful! So, all in all, this was a good option for our needs in an outstanding location.

Good location but rooms furniture dated
