              • The location was very good and the hotel was very comfortable. Again staff were attentive, room service was excellent and breakfast was great lovely fresh fruit lots of choice.

                Tv reception was very poor, we used the bar downstairs once and found to be too expensive for us, the pool was really tiny, and not designed for swimming.

              • Excellent location very quite nice staf, restaurants and a short cab/, the architecture of the old MarlBorough Street magistrates court has been retained beautifully.

                Very poor service and never a 5 star hotel, for the price of the room one would like to see some fresh coffee and a larger selection of teas.

                The spa is a real haven and one will not believe you are in the city centre, not a cheap place by any means, the rooms are often from around.

Courthouse burger is tasty and lovely sandwiches and a cocktail to wash down. The spa is very discreet and private.

                Tv picture quality bad, breakfast is poor.

              • Loved the location, beautiful hotel and service was friendly, helpful and promptin all respects. Room was very good and breakfast was fine.

                Food was nothing more than average, all staff were really friendly and made you feel welcome, the bath handle was broken.
