6/10 Good

When i cam down for breakfast there was a room filled with customers, and only 2 members of staff servicing. As they were both busy they did not notice that i had been waiting at the entrance to the room as the instructions clearly indicated. In the end because of waiting for a long time i decided to find a seat. In that time a waitress asked for my breakfast order, but explained that it would be longer than 15min. As i had already waited i was running late for work. So I only requested coffee. Despite paying for breakfast. I did not have time to discuss this at check out because of the delays to the start of my day

Nice Hotel in the city centre - parking not great.
Room was modern and clean. TV fitted to the wall in slightly odd position. Food service stopped at 8:30pm and the numerous instructions re parking didn't seem to make parking any easier, ended up with long walk up the hill to hotel and £10+ spent on parking.

Beautiful hotel. The rooms have been upgraded to a very high standard. Very tasteful. Only negative is that the walls are very thin so we could hear conversations next door but because of the age of the building that’s to be expected.
