We loved our short stay at the Ellison. Having arrived very early we were very quickly accommodated. Reception staff were very helpful but more than that they were friendly. This helped us to feel relaxed and very much at home. The restaurant provided a good selection of quality food at both Dinner and Breakfast. Also the hotel is ideally situated right by the Theatre Royal. Additionally it has its own multi storey car park so parking is not an issue. All in all a great place to stay.

Highly recommend this hotel, staff are well trained and extremely courteous. Special mention to Kyla and Anna who switched my room to a quieter room at the back of the hotel and helped me find a plug for my charger!
