A very satisfied customer wrote: “Wow! Wow! Wow! What can I say except Wow! I’ve visited quite a few Wetherspoons rooms but never one like this, it must be a flagship of the group? The service was consistent as at all Wetherspoons establishments, the staff were friendly, professional, helpful and attentive, the vegan breakfast and refillable hot chocolate excellent, but it was the venue itself, simply an architectural delight and history! It was amazing and definitely worth the trip.
