Positive Reviews

A central location

According to guests, the location of the hotel couldn’t be more central. They find they are within walking distance of all shopping, eateries, and attractions. Royal Shakespeare Company is especially close, sitting right across from the road. Guests love that they can access it hassle-free. As if it’s not enough, guests also note that some rooms come with a great view of the river, which is a nice touch.

Staff members are terrific

Staff members working at this property are well though of by reviewers. From being polite to friendly and helpful, they are everything travellers seem to need while on holiday. Guests report that nothing is too much trouble for the dedicated crew members.

Breakfast is to die for

The first meal of the day should make for a good day’s start, and this hotel knows it only too well. Guests report enjoying freshly cooked items, which are also plentiful so they can have their pick. It’s with reason that guests speak highly of the breakfast served on this premises.

Negative Reviews

Walls are a bit thin

Guests are concerned that the walls are paper thin. These let noise, ranging from footsteps to conversational speech in too easily. Creaky floorboards are said to add to the general level of disturbance.
