I wanted a single room but have limited mobility and a top floor room (the only single shown on booking) would be very difficult for me. I telephoned the very helpful receptionist, Daniela, who moved me to a first floor room, which I was able to cope with.
Breakfast was great; my only issue being that it’s served very early (between 7.30am to 8.30am during the week and 8am - 9am at weekends). Accordingly, since I wanted a bit of a lie in on my short break, I only had breakfast in the hotel once. I found an excellent all day breakfast venue a short walk away in Robertson Street ( the ‘Castle View Cafe’).
Finally, the parking is pricey near the hotel - I found the best value was to pay for 24 hours at a time (£8) in the Underground car park at Carlisle Parade (only a short walk from the hotel).
