I chose the Brassey hotel for its old world charm but the color scheme inside was following the modern trend of dark grey / grey. It felt (room 127) dungeon like even though the fascilities in the room were all very adequate.

Overall we were impressed with the Brassey Hotel. The beds were very comfortable, the rooms a reasonable size and clean. The only difficulty we experienced was parking at certain time of the day.

Delighted to return after some time to find The Brassey had not lost its unique charm and identity. Great staff and amenities, the self-service and relaxing space in the foyer is an excellent addition.
