Lovely room and great staff. Who could ask for more. Cheaper bar prices might help. To be fair the nice girl behind the bar did warn us about the Slingsby gin price. Didn't stop us buying a bottle in ... more

Dear 007Birmingham, Thank you for your review and I am sorry that there was a mix up with your booking details on arrival but pleased they were sorted out quickly by my team. I do however believe this issue may well have marred your impression of the rest of the hotel as I would stand by strongly the cleanliness standards of the hotel and this is very prevalent on this site from all reviews. With regards the age of the room, we are working through a rolling program of refurbishment and have completed nearly half of the bedrooms now and have plans to do more early next year. Thank you once more for taking the time to write your review and I trust this wil not deter you from visiting us again when I hope you may try one of our new Executive or Superior type rooms. Simon J Cotton General Manager
