Friendly greeting on arrival, very helpful and pleasant staff.
I only stayed one night. Although I arrived early, well before the usual check-in time, there was no problem about leaving my case with reception. A room had been allocated to me, but as I was very early it wasn't quite ready, the receptionist said that my case would be taken up to the room once it was ready. Traditional full English breakfast which was excellent, there was also a choice of a continental breakfast plus the usual option of cereals, fruit, jams, pastries etc. Bedroom was very clean, I chose the Superior accommodation and the room was a good size with a bay window over looking the Devonshire Park Theatre. All the room facilities were in good order, kettle for tea/coffee, TV, hair drier (although didn't use it, just looked to see if it was working....don't know why!) There was also a docking station thingy but to be honest it could have been a CD player for all I knew, I didn't take much notice of it........you can tell I'm not that interested in new technology, wasted on me I'm afraid! The Mowbray has achieved a AA 4 star Gold rating which I fully endorse. The bed was very comfortable and I had a great night sleep.
The room was very nice, the only point I would mention is that the lounge area, would benefit from a little freshening up, even if it was just the woodwork.
