Location: Excellent. No need for a car. 15 min walk to the city centre, first 10 mins can be on the riverside path. Many buses stop at the end of the drive going to/from city centre. £1.10 in either direction.
Sleep Quality: Mattress comfy, one pillow lumpy but easily remedied as 2 spare pillows in cupboard. Duvet warm enough for time of year with no heating on. Bedlinen spotless.
Rooms: Really spacious. Nicely furnished. Well-provisioned - drinks-making supplies, biscuits (on arrival day), hairdryer, TV, fan, ironing board, iron, safe. Clean. Great view over lawn & water meadow beyond.
Bathroom: Adequate, if a little narrow, & tired. Shower over bath. Huge mirror which cleared quickly after showering. Efficient extractor. Toiletries good & some replenished daily. V clean.
Service: Excellent housekeeping team. Receptionists welcoming, efficient, helpful. Waiting staff in restaurant a bit haphazard & man on desk confused by our not having inclusive breakfast & being in 2 different rooms.
Food: Buffet breakfast excellent. Great range of foodstuffs, hot & cold. Space to move around & make choices without congestion. Only had one dinner, also excellent, especially with £5 voucher supplied when we booked table. Some tables arranged too close together & guests shown to adjoining tables even when few patrons to be accommodated.
Value: Food a bit pricey, rooms might also be considered pricey in a less popular city & location but, in the circumstances, good value provided.
