Ideal city stay
Excellent location, staff were very helpful with taking luggage early and arranging for an early check in. We were very fortunate to be upgraded but the whole experience including breakfast quality and service was top notch.

July city break
My wife and I stayed for 3 nights in a dulux room. The room had tea and coffee making facilities as well as a desk fan. We did like the idea of a free drink if you opted out of having your bed sheets changed daily. My only observation was that as the room was on the 2nd floor it did suffer from a lack of ventilation especially as most of the windows were locked. We did like the small basket of treats that were in the room including beers crisps and nuts. The breakfast was tasty and just about the right portions offering both continental and traditional dishes. My only gripe was that there was only one tea and coffee machine which caused queues. Why not provide table service for this. The hotel was central to the city and within easy walking of all museums and cultural sites.

We thought that our dinner, in some cases was not quite up to the standard of the rest of the hotel .
