Good staff on the reception desk very helpful. The location was fantastic. Bed was comfortable room clean, and the bathroom clean. Has a lovely "old fashioned" feel about it and would definitely stay there again

Two nights, traveling with aged Mom, great staff, friendly, helpful, courteous. Beds very comfy, rooms smallish and bathrooms same but more then adequate. Food is very good. We did not make our reservation for the restaurant so ate in the lobby/bar but food was perfectly acceptable. Very nice hotel, well worth the money.

We have stayed at Buswells on three separate occasions and love this spot. It's close to shopping and major attractions but still out of the way enough to be quiet and restful. Great atmosphere. Some lovely architecture. Excellent Shepherd's Pie in the restaurant. Very nice breakfast. Staff are uniformly pleasant and helpful. Suggestion: book something other than a compact room... More

Wanted a hotel in close to the museums and town but quiet and this was it. Stayed for 4 fabulous nights and wish it could have been longer. From the first friendly welcome to check out it was unadulterated joy. Food, staff, location all excellent. Can't fault it at all and can't wait to get back.

Lovely hotel. Great space. We stayed in a suite with a room and a sitting area. Hot water in the shower with good water pressure. Within walking distance from Trinity College and lots of great bars and restaurants. The breakfast buffet was really good with croissants and nice jams.
