If you are traveling by train, this is a perfect location! Right across from the train station, and a city bus (tram?) as well. The Hotel staff was welcoming, and we were so happy to be able to get into our room right away so we could drop off our stuff and get outside! We were blessed with pretty good weather and sunshine! We had booked a Roman Soldier Tour, so off we went. We grabbed a ride on the bus outside for one pound, but could have walked it on 20 minutes. We only had the afternoon and evening, and lots to see here! We wanted to save some energy to walk the walls about 1.8 miles). This city is a great place to walk! On the walls you can see the racecourse, the cathedral, the river, and lots of the city. It was like a Hop On Hop Off walk! Lunch was Blackstock's Fish and Chips right beside the Tourist Info Center - Delicious!!!! And later, we loved the ambiance of The Bear and Billet (right off of the wall past the Roman Amphitheater remains).
Now, about those sheets - shame on you, Premier Queen Hotel! Such a perfect hotel in every way, but buy some friggin' fitted sheets!! When you pull the sheets back, you are untucking the bottom sheet, which isn't even long enough to tuck in at the top or bottom. And to save a tiny bit on time, all the sheets are all tucked together on the sides, so as tired as you are, you have to run around both sides of the bed to try to secure the bottom sheet so you don't wake up with your face on the mattress. Yuck. I would personally rather stay in a different hotel where I had a fitted bottom sheet and didn't have to wrestle with this all night (because it is so short on top and bottom it doesn't stay tucked at all!) less
