Good Hotel Guide Review

The ornate rooms at this listed 18th-century mansion have seen grand balls, concerts, travelling circus acts and general merry-making over their many years; in 2016, the landmark venue added ‘luxurious, tasteful’ accommodation to the mix. ‘Ideally situated’, the red brick building is in a ‘quiet’ cul-de-sac next to the Theatre Royal; Guide inspectors this year praised the ‘considerable investment in guests’ comfort’. Past the ‘impressive’ reception hall, super-stylish bedrooms in an older house (six with their own garden) are reached via a modern extension. ‘Our large room was appealingly decorated with a glass chandelier, countryside prints, a collection of polished brass cooking moulds. All the mod cons were there – espresso machine, stylish TV, adjustable reading lights; fruit, biscuits and umbrellas were available in a communal area.’ Take an elegant afternoon tea with the locals, but skip the ‘bland’ early supper of ‘standard fare’ – the city’s restaurants and cafés are on the doorstep. At breakfast find freshly squeezed orange juice, leaf tea, ‘very fine’ coffee served by the cup; a ‘naughtily creamy’ omelette Arnold Bennett with ‘first-rate’ smoked haddock.
