        • Excellent location for shopping and fantastic Hotel. Great venue and staff very friendly. Room was comfortable and spotless, the bar was the best, breakfast had a wide range of choice.

        • The location is great and the street The George is on has some fantastic bars. The hotel lobby is beautiful and reception is efficient. The breakfast is excellent and the staff serve extremely gracious, evidently recently refurbished, the facilities are impressive.

          The corridor areas to the bedroom are disappointingly dull and quot;computer says no should be confined to Little Britain.

        • Good location, great Hotel and the staff were very helpful and friendly. The room was clean, large, food was delicious.

          The bathroom was small and cramped.
