The room had a vanity mirror and chair hidden inside the wardrobe. Very clever and in tune with the decor. Had a pre-dinner drink in the Cloth Ear bar before enjoyed a lovely meal in...

Perfect in every aspect. Couldn't have asked for a better few days 5*+ from start to finish. People, food, room and all bars friendly and city right on your doorstep. Christmas market a bonus! Wife enjoyed her birthday treat and we will definitely return in the near future.

I recently stayed at the merchant with 10 girls from the minute you arrive you are treated like royalty from the concierge taking our bags to the staff on reception. We arrived on the 5th floor to our Art Deco room, these rooms are pure luxury and incredible from the lightbulbs around the mirrors to the huge bath tubs. We...

Stayed Saturday 22nd November for my wife's birthday. From the moment you hand over the car keys to the concierge and walk through the doors you are made to feel special. Rooms are super plush, spotlessly clean, very comfortable and have every extra you would need and more. The whole ambience of the hotel is a wonderful experience. Breakfast in...
