Hotel Felix  (Shortlist*)

In large landscaped gardens on the edge of the city, this smart, contemporary hotel is in a late-Victorian villa with modern extensions. The staff are ‘welcoming, attentive, well trained and efficient’; Shara Ross is the manager. Public rooms have displays of modern art; there are regular exhibitions of local artists’ works. Bedrooms are divided between the original house and more recently added wings. Individually decorated, they have a ‘great’ bed and a bathroom with underfloor heating. In the restaurant overlooking the south-facing terrace and garden, chef Jose Graziosi serves modern dishes with an Italian twist. Informal meals and afternoon tea are taken in the Orangery and the bar, or on the pretty terrace during the summer months. Small lounge, bar, Graffiti restaurant; Orangery. Room service.

  • We had a delightful welcome from Shara (GM) on arrival. Our room was all we could expect. The bed was perfect. Bars and lounges were comfy, although we’d prefer no music. The staff everywhere were welcoming, attentive, well-trained and efficient. The dinner was reasonable, and we weren’t charged extra for a starter, as we had expected, because we hadn’t had any puddings and my husband hadn’t had a starter. The background noise from the road was slightly disturbing to us overnight, but it didn’t prevent a good night’s sleep. The housekeeping is very good but some of the fitments are beginning to show their age.
