Stayed at the Mayfield on business and was very satisfied with the experience from start to finish. The concierge, easily identified by uniform and top hat set the scene for what was a relaxed and pleasant stay. Service was excellent all round, from front desk to dining. The place has old world charm and details plenty of history on its walls. Very comfortable beds and was surprised to see the 'turn down service' (with TV/Aircon remotes, bottle of water, chocolate and slippers by bed) making a comeback.
Nice features, such as a putter and putting machine in the room kind of highlights one of the demographics they target. TV reception (read hotel rebroadcast system) left a little to be desired as a bit fuzzy but as I didn’t use it for much more than to check the weather, not an issue. Some plumbing noise woke me, but I should have been up anyway... not unexpected in a building of this age.
Food - excellent, both the Breakfast and the superb Bistro for evening meal.
Location didn’t bother me, but did seem to be away from the town centre a little. Quiet, even if you are on the periphery of an educational campus.
