I booked 1 night at the Westminster Hotel for my partners birthday. I chose the hotel as the pictures on the internet looked lovely and the hotel seemed to be a nice place to stay in a good location.
We were welcomed by friendly staff who checked us in quickly and efficiently. The appearance of the hotel outside and in the lobby was very nice, we loved the fact it seemed to have interesting history behind it.
However, we weren't so pleased with the appearance of the rest of the hotel and the rooms. Everywhere seemed to be run down. It was clean and tidy but the hotel needs a breath of fresh air. Our room felt run down, with old furniture and dusty pictures and surfaces. I was disappointed as I was paying a lot of money for a night in the hotel and the price didn't reflect what we were getting.
The room served its purpose, getting a nights sleep before heading out the next day, however it felt very run down and not worth the money. If you are looking for a simple room for a simple nights sleep then this hotel is perfect for you.
We didn't have breakfast so can't comment on it.
A handy note; there is parking next to the hotel on the pub car park. We managed to get a space but I can imagine it can get busy and if this is the case, I couldn't see parking anywhere else nearby, however I wasn't looking for any. The parking at the pub is only £3 for 4 hours and £5 for 24 hours which is great value for money as it is right next to the hotel.
The hotel is in a great location in terms of the city centre if you are able to walk. It is only about a 10 minute walk into the centre and is easy to find. However, if you are unable to walk very far, there are closer hotels towards the city centre. less
