Fodor's Review

Leave it to one of the U.K.'s most forward-thinking chains to convert a Victorian-era asylum into this understated luxury property that feels steeped in history and lore despite its contemporary decor and trappings, like the hip bar and restaurant. The 47 amply proportioned rooms are all individually designed, so do some research ahead of time; all, however, mix original architectural elements with stylish appointments like Egyptian linen-topped hand-sprung mattresses, deep soaking tubs, and plasma TVs. Elsewhere, there's a French-style Bistro du Vin and mezzanine bar, cigar area, tasting room, unique meeting spaces and–of course–a well-stocked wine cellar. Guests can also kick back in the hotel's whisky snug, where 270 different varieties of the "water of life" are ripe for sampling. Situated next to the university, the hotel is surrounded by pubs and restaurants, and is close to city attractions, yet it's easy to find peace within the warrenlike recesses of the building–something the former residents might not have acheived.
