I was on a walking tour with VBT. Luckily, they booked us with Brook Lane Hotel. Everything was very nice but Oh That Breakfast. It was a feast. One unique item was their porridge with Bailey's Irish Cream. I never got to that. I was too busy eating poached eggs on smoked salmon, poached pears, raspberries and homemade bread. I... More

My second stay at the Brook Lane, and again the hotel certainly didn't disappoint. This hotel must be commended on the little extras that set it apart from its competition. The hotel is incredibly clean, and everything is pristine. You feel that you can walk on the carpets, without picking up a case of athletes’ foot, which is unusual for... More
