Not a great experience!

Check in was very good and Guy on the reception was very friendly and efficient. The room was dated and tired and poorly finished in the en-suite. Bed clothes were very old fashioned and could do with a duvet but minor detail. The sink only gave me hot water which wasn’t nice when brushing teeth and in the morning I had the pleasure of an ice cold shower as the hot wasn’t working. Advised issue to reception on check out and young man on counter apologised but no offer of part refund or discount off another stay. Breakfast was pretty good. No parking so had to park away from hotel with a 5 min walk but again minor detail. I would not stay at this hotel again due to the cold shower problem.

    The hotel is located right in the heart of Clifton, and is easy to find. Parking was easily accessible and although I had to pay for it, it was nice to have the peace of mind that the car was safe (especially after breaking down on the way). The room was ideal for my husband and I. It was a little rough round the edges, and the bathroom floor could definitely have done with being replaced and some of the grout etc in the bathroom could do with being touched up. It was, however, a spacious and comfortable room. The bed, which was a king size, was just 2 singles joined together in the middle which was ok until my husband almost fell down the middle of them during the night! It would be good to have actual double/king sized beds in some rooms
