Stayed here on a Saturday night. Easy check in with the friendly and helpful reception staff.
Decent sized room on the fourth floor with views over the wharf (if you cricked your neck!) and an office block. Our friends on the opposite side of the corridor had views to the Cathedral, the hotle next door and the wharf (if you cricked your neck).
Took lunch in the restaurant, three courses, all excellent and thoroughly enjoyable. Apparently everything was made in-house. Not had peanut butter ice cream since a visit to the states many years ago.
The waitress advised having dinner as that is when chef really lets his imagination go. However as we were there for an evening concert we were not able to have dinner.
We did call into the bar (top floor with views over the wharf) on our return in the evening, quite lively and good value cocktails. An express lift that only travels between the ground floor and the bar ensures reasonable security for the hotel.
Had an excellent nights sleep in the large bed with quality quilt and bed linen. Although our friends were disturbed by some oiks in the next room attempting to get in the linking door.
Breakfast was a buffet with lots of choice, well presented and easily accessible.
The staff at the hotel were all happy to help and seemed cheery and supportive of each other, generating a good atmosphere.
My only criticism is that the writing on the toiletries was a bit small and difficult to read without glasses (codger view). Please please please can hotel chains arrange with the suppliers of these items to have what they are written in a decent sized and clearly defined font. Washing ones hair with body lotion doesn't seem to work as well as with shampoo!
We would certainly stay here again and try to have dinner in the restaurant next time.
