We had an absolutely brilliant stay at the hotel. The breakfast was staggeringly good (and we could see the castle from our breakfast table!) and for a sizeable hotel the staff made you feel very special and very well looked after. Highly recommended on all fronts.

Central. Clean. A bit old school but well priced.”

Excellent location. Good staff and service. Room we had was dated but totally inoffensive. Didn't eat but it only served 'Street food' which felt a little out of character with the building. Not sure how the chef went with that one. Offered free parking and 10% discount on food & drinks before we booked...which didnt exist when we got there. Enjoyed the stay all the same.

Fabulous location”

This hotel is in the heart of the city centre. The staff were very friendly and the hotel was clean. There is a quirky old elevator and you can see the grandeur of the building. Our room was small and decor a little tired but great for the price. We found the double bed a little small but otherwise no complaints.

Very friendly helpful staff, great location, beautiful hotel”

Our room was perfectly adequate for our purposes; clean, light, spacious with bright bathroom. Loved the vintage lift and the shared spaces particularly; dining room, reception and bar, wide stairs - everything with a vintage feel yet bright and clean. The only downside was that there were no blinds or net curtains to provide privacy. Much needed in bathroom with only frosted glass between you and the outside world!! Food was fantastic, including large breakfast with many options. The staff were very helpful and accommodating especially Rachel, and other reception staff. Also useful was a free-use mobile phone with local guide, internet browser and free calls! Also there is a small car park at the back of the building. Highly recommend this hotel.
