Good Hotel Guide Review
‘Well located for exploring the city’, this contemporary hotel opposite the Philharmonic Hall basks in the buzz of the vibrant cultural quarter. ‘Light, airy’ public areas showcase the history of the former Victorian coach factory – exposed brick walls, vintage metal supports and old beams have been retained. Smart, stripped-back bedrooms (white walls, uncovered wood floors) vary in size and aspect. Those at the top have ‘wonderful views’ of the river or city landmarks; others have a less inspiring outlook. Order sharing platters and cocktails in the bar; in the London Carriage Works restaurant, ‘delicious’ modern dishes use plenty of regional produce. At breakfast, a guest this year found the continental selection lacking imagination, though ‘the cooked dishes, off a varied menu, are generous’. 25 mins’ downhill walk to Lime Street Station.
