Within walking distance of the city centre (10-15 minutes), the hotel is on a main residential road, which stretches towards Wales, though traffic noise isn’t an issue.
High ceilings and huge windows add to the large size of the rooms to create a really strong sense of space and light. And while they could never be described as modern, each of the differently styled rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable. Ask for views of the Welsh hills, and for a treat, upgrade to one of two rooms with a four-poster bed. A number of really large family rooms are also available and kids are made to feel most welcome.
A large lounge bar with pool table and a green and blossoming back garden.
Eating and drinking
The Langdale Restaurant is residents-only and head chef Michelle Barron does a sterling job with local ingredients – including some fruit and veg from the Curzon’s own garden.
Friendly and most welcoming, nothing is too much trouble.
Who stays there
Mostly leisure guests, lots of regulars and families.
Breakfast and parking included (there are ample spaces at the back of the hotel). There’s a two-night minimum during race events.
