We chose this hotel because of its gardens and view to the city. Unfortunately there were no rooms on that side of the hotel, but the room we had was enormous, with a great big comfortable bed. The bathroom was also more spacious than standard, and for once our towels were left hanging on the rails for reuse as we wanted rather than being changed regardless of the stated environmental policy as in many other places we have stayed. As others on this site have said, there is a main road outside, but we weren't disturbed by any traffic noise at all, perhaps as hotel set back a bit. Breakfast included a choice of fruit and cereals, as well as a hearty full English, taken in a room with that wonderful view of the city out over their own gardens. There was also a very comfortable lounge with newspapers and magazines, and a fire. It also had a bar, though we didn't use this. Service was very good - helpful and friendly - throughout, including finding me some lemon and ginger teabags when we arrived back late after our Friday night to use instead of standard tea with the kettle and teapot in the room.
Overall, a very comfortable stay, worth paying the extra.
