Excellent location and good carpark nearby. Nearest to a home from home stay I have had. Modern, comfortable bedroom and bathroom and great breakfast.
service comfort food bathroom
could do with double glazing the bedrooms to minimise some noise from outside
Room was lovely, very clean, loved the bath in the room. Ensuite was lovely and spacious. Really good selection of toiletries. Really lovely friendly staff, we were also upgraded which was lovely.
Noise from traffic and people going and leaving nightclub/pub very noisy but after a while was able to drown out and get some sleep. No parking at hotel although had a council car park behind hotel had to get up early to pay for parking.
great location, great hotel, very helpful staff lovely room and a breakfast great.
Quality of room, food and service.
Some quirky, interesting design and service features, great shower and bathroom facilities, very comfortable (in a Superior room), outstanding service from staff, and overall a brilliant and unexpected find. Will be coming back!
A bit of noise from road and surrounds (mid-week). The very prompt room service partly compensated for the absence of tea/coffee in the bedroom, but not wholly. Restaurant menu interesting - starter excellent, main course good, price OK. Excellent breakfast.
Stayed just one night and booked via Bookings.com. Very pleasantly surprised by the warm welcome from the night porter (we were very late arriving). Lovely room & en-suite. Very comfortable and excellent breakfast. First Class.
If being picky a car park would be great but worth the walk!
Staff were amazing. Excellent breakfast. A classy place.
The room was lovely. Staff very helpful and friendly without being overpowering.
Overall the room was clean but unfortunately whilst having a shower the base very nearly overflowed and water only drained away when I removed the shower trap/plug which was covered in hair. I also had to remove a clump of hair to ensure the water went down. To be fair the staff dealt with this promptly when it was reported but plugs and drains should be cleaned out regularly.
Georgian town house in centre of town. Night Porter and staff. Good breakfast. Designer furnishings
Convenience of location, peace and quiet, very large and comfortable room, excellent breakfast (cooked to order).
Public car park and standard room rate. However, my car was not vandalised and I was lucky to find a discounted Internet rate. I look forward to my next visit.
How many interesting feature the hotel accommodated. Loved the wallpaper!
An old building very tastefully restored to provide every modern comfort.
Towel rail in the bathroom not switched on in advance of arrival
Very clean and luxury furnishings.
The room (Room 2) was cold and could have done with tea/coffee making facilities. The wifi was very poor.
Beautifully decorated room that was comfortable and had everything you could need. Bar and restaurant really appealing and serving lovely drinks and food; all staff very smart and attentive.
Shouting outside in the street after pub closing, obviously not the hotel's fault but hindered sleep. And the piped music played downstairs in the bar which we could hear in our room.
Light bulb missing in room Only one tooth mug in bathroom No kettle nor mugs in room Towel rail in bedroom did not work Incorrect Breakfast order delivered Sweet porridge
As a single female traveller , I was made to feel very welcome and most importantly felt extremely safe in the hotel. Bedrooms were fabulous, had the fixed menu the first night, and something off the a la carte menu the second, both equally great. Had eggs benedict the first morning and a full English the second. Once again , very good. Great locations or working in the city centre.
Only slight downside, room two has the extractor fan outside and was quite Noisy, did switch off quite early at night, but fired up st 6 am. But did not detract from the stay
everything was great,amazing quality
food excellent Facilities service
A lovely boutique hotel highly recommended for the quick stop over.
More choice of TV channels. For example no sports channels.
The hotel was beautifully designed. The staff were very helpful and friendly and the chef even came in early to cook breakfast before The Great North Run! Fabulous!
The noise outside when clubs, bars closed were closing, not really the hotel's fault! Double glazing may help!
Our room was fantastic
