Hotel is a little out of Peterborough centre. It's a 1 mile walk, or a £4.00 taxi to the football ground, so a little less than that to the main city centre.
As other reviewers have mentioned, the air-con doesn't seem to work in the ground floor rooms, but the very nice lady on reception moved me to a 1st floor room with excellent air-con (it was 29 degrees outside that day - so very welcome).
The room was lovely, with nice mood lighting as shown on the web page, and a fragrance plug-in to make the room smell nice. Quite a large room, with a large work desk and chair, as well as another table and 2 soft chairs for relaxing (and for eating breakfast). Large screen TV on the wall opposite the bed, and tea / coffee making facilities finish the room off. The bathroom was quite large, spotlessly clean, with a good sized shower. The water pressure in the shower could be better, but certainly adequate. Some basic toiletries are supplied.
Breakfast was a continental affair (toast, pastries, croissants, cereals etc) that you pre-order the evening before and it is brought to your room at the requested time. I actually enjoyed this and the toast and Danish pastry were even still warm.
There is a very good Thai restaurant attached to the hotel.
Overall, this is the best hotel I have stayed in while in Peterborough. It may not be the cheapest, but the bit extra is worth it in my opinion.
