Our favourite rooms
Here’s the boon of a new building – even the entry-level Fresher rooms have floor-to-ceiling windows, super-king-size beds with duck down mattress toppers and marble-clad bathrooms, so you can’t go wrong. The retro bakelite telephone and Roberts DAB radio in every room stole our hearts.
Bring your childlike sense of wonder for exploring the mind-bogglingly rich history of the city… and maybe sunglasses for masking your “one-too-many martinis” pallor.
All public areas and a number of bedrooms are fully wheelchair accessible.
Very welcome. The public spaces are all easily accessible with a pushchair. Babysitting can be arranged for £15 an hour – just give the hotel at least 24 hours notice. Foldaway cots (£25), extra beds for children (£35) and highchairs are available, too.
