I have stayed 3 times at Banks Mansion, so far. And I'll be back in the near future. I guess this says it all. The last time I was there I discovered they actually changed the slippers as I had suggested them a few weeks before. I actually met the manager and we discussed this issue. Otherwise, great as usual,...

Had a four night stay here from Thursday to Monday. The hotel is three tram stops from main station and has plenty of bars/ restaurants very near by. We found all attractions we wanted to visit easy to do on foot as this hotel was bang in the middle. The hotel itself was just perfect. Everything from the staff and...
