The hotel on its own is very central. Surrounding by great pubs and restaurants. The bannister restaurant has an amazing atmosphere. The rooms are exactly as they are advertised. Very clean and quiet.

Hi Thats not a problem we normally have. It has happened when the laundry was delivered late. If it happens the front desk should explain and offer them a coffee. Did you have such a problem?
