Our room was amazing. We had a view overlooking the river. Five minute walk to all the restaurants and pubs. Ate almost all our meals at their restaurant because the food was great. Everyone was so kind and helpful. Would definitely recommend the Absolute Hotel.

This is a really nice hotel with a rarity of good food in the grill attached but outside of the fantastic room (415) with a living room and bedroom , it's the small things that matter. Being greeted by name prior to saying who I am is a really small simple thing but goes a long way after a shocking...

Excellent food in the Absolute Restaurant, servers and staff throughout the week could not have been better from Darren to Sandra to Eion, and everyone else. Rooms were beautiful and clean. Cannot recommend the Absolute Hotel enough.

A really lovely hotel, it could be classed as a business hotel or as an adult hotel. We went during the mid term break with our two adult daughters for some catch up time and we were sure we would have to go to a hotel that caters for families because we wanted a spa break. Now, when our children...

Such an unusual place, sitting over an ancient river front, totally alive and full of modern atmosphere. Great food in an amazing old part of town. Should not be missed. The whole place comes alive at Christmas in a different way to the average hotel. Christmas office parties here feel like how you image a seasonal get together should be.

We stayed here for two nights and had a comfortable, large room. We had a "Do Not Disturb " sign on our door and housekeeping left a bag of fresh towels and toilet tissue by our door. We thought that was a great idea and never had that service before in any other hotel. The staff was very friendly and...
