overnight business trip

Posted Aug 6, 2014
Pros: Location
Cons: Lighting in the rooms
Location: opposite train station
directly opposite the train station makes this hotel very convenient, location is everything. The room was ok, reasonably spacious and clean. Very poor lighting in the room was disapointing, and it was very hot, no fan provided. I didnt eat this time but menu looked ok. Will probably stay again due to location, but found it not reallly good vslue for money.

Exceptional Staff, Fantastic atmosphere here.

Posted Jul 30, 2014
Pros: Refreshing an welcoming atmosphere from all staff providing that essential feeling of being a welcomed guest
Cons: The only suggestion I have is to request the TV should not be fitted so high on the wall.
Location: Excellent location to the train station and main trunk road into Peterborough and unique proximity to the City centre and shopping hall.
Refreshing an welcoming atmosphere from all staff providing that essential feeling of being a welcomed guest, keeping up with tradition which is very warming for the weary traveller to feel at home. The whole establishment is spotless and well maintained with high ceilings and comfortable surroundings in this elegant hotel.

More Than Pleased

Posted Jun 26, 2014
Pros: as above
Cons: Shower cap and hair straightens
Location: great for the railway but working is time although the Cathedral is wonderful I am told
The hotel building has been there for many years, so no lift if you have heavy bags but as the hotel staff in all areas were wonderful this was no problem. Room lovely and spacious. Beautiful Bath and separate shower with over head sunflower shower ( no shower cap in room please supply next time!) Room not too noisy. Meal excellent and reasonably priced but I was the only one there. Breakfast was also great massive choice.

another night

Excellent hotel, Reliable WIFI, slight drawback is that there is no Air Conditioning and in the summer the south facing rooms get very hot. Otherwise an excellent hotel and service.

Great Hotel but....

Posted May 12, 2014 on Hotels.com
I've stayed here before and always been pleased with the service, however this time I was in a room at the front overlooking the station. At 3pm newspaper vans were slamming doors, banging metalwork and shouting outside. At 4pm several women were shouting outside, and at 6pm the pa system started up in the station. Not much sleep was had that night as a result, so ask for a room on the other side from the station if you want to sleep!

friendly hotel opposite train station

Posted Jan 2, 2014
Pros: The staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough to ensure i had everything i needed.
The hotel staff were very helpful and friendly. My room was on the second floor (lift was out of order but this was not a problem for me). Room was a nice size and so was the bathroom. Only thing to mention was there was only a bedside lamp next to the bed and no other lighting around this area, quite difficult to iron when you can see properly.
