Good location.

Posted 30-May-2015
Super location for the city and our evening show. Nice room (deluxe double) but Bed too soft for us though so not a great nights sleep. Furniture a bit tired in room too. Good staff, very helpful and accommodating and nice touches made stay good like glass of wine on arrival etc. would recommend.

Needs sprucing up

Posted 18-May-2015
Pros: Very pleasant receptionist, good location.
Cons: Needs a refurb, carpet and furnishing getting old and shabby. Towels although clean look grubby. Bed perfectly comfy but pillows old and lumpy.
Location: Handy for town. Fantastic little coffee shop 2 doors down. open on Sunday mornings.
Not a bad hotel but could be much better. Urgently needs updating shabby and tired.

Pros: Jess on reception was great, nothing was too much trouble.
Booked for my Wifes surprise 30th Birthday party. I was thoroughly impressed with the standard of the room, guest service and overall experience. Looking forward to staying again

Good but could be so much better

Posted 20-Apr-2015
Pros: Great aspect looking over the river Individual rooms Good coffee and home made biscuits Complimentary wine on arrival Honesty bar
Cons: Lack of atmosphere in bar/lounge
Location: Most people will head for central town but there are things of interest just across the water The Armoury, the Adelphi Pub, Tetleys HQ
I have stayed at 42 The Calls three times so far but this time was disappointing because our bed was particularly uncomfortable ( no problem on previous visits) I didn't complain because I don't expect to be moved to another room until I can find a good bed and I don't expected the hotel to change the bed either as that would be impractical Its just something that would probably consider somewhere else next time I think the idea of the honesty bar is very good but unfortunately we always seem to be the only ones using it so the only communal area apart from the small restaurant has little or no atmosphere

fantastic hotel but terrible bed

fantastic hotel but terrible bed, bed had obviously seen better days- springs were digging into my back all night. such a shame as everything else was faultless - however sleeping is 50% of a hotel stay

Nice hotel. Love the architecture. Rooms a little dated however. Arrived late - looked after well by night porter who helped me with luggage and a glass of wine!

Great hotel close to the city centre

Posted 16-Mar-2015
Quirky hotel with loads of character within 5 minutes walk of the city centre. Staff were all excellent and friendly and the breakfast was superb. Too many nice little touches to go into but the complimentary glass of wine on check in was a great touch. Will definitely book again.

Great on the whole

Posted 10-Mar-2015 on Hotels
We've stayed here a few times and will again in the future. Friendly staff. Rooms are good and some quirky, though a little tired in some places. Cobwebs on some of the beams, and a few pre-drilled holes in walls where something used to be, so attention to detail is lacking. Hotel honesty bar is a great idea but choice is quite limited. Breakfast was lovely.
