Location and the friendliness of the staff deserve top rating for this hotel. I did not eat here so cannot comment on the food quality or value for money, but the prices listed looked very reasonable. It is an old building with old fittings, and renovation of the bathroom was well overdue. However everything was in working order and clean. Furniture in-room also due for replacement, very worn and tatty. From previous reviews, it looked like some work had already started in upkeep/refurbishment. Bed was comfortable, noise levels while not a bother during the day, was noticeable at night, especially in the corner room with the beeping from pedestrian crossing. However, this is a central city hotel close to main streets so take note. There were ear plugs provided. Good provisions with tea and coffee and refrigerator. Check out was smooth. Happy to store baggage at Reception.

Very nice location if you like to be in the hustle and bustle of it all. The staff was very kind and helpful. The people in the room next to us kept slamming the door and we could hear that very clearly so keep that in mind when you come to stay

I found the Law Courts to be perfect for what I wanted. Good value, clean accomodation near the centre of town. Parts of the building are a bit dated, but not shabby, this only adds to its character. The staff were friendly and the beer in the bar was good. I didn’t get a chance to eat her but the smell coming from the dining area was very enticing.

If you're looking for a flash, modern 5-star hotel, the Law Courts is not for you. This is a building steeped in history but our room was nicely updated, clean, roomy and had a very comfortable bed. Centrally located, it's just a short walk to the Octagon and less than 10 minute walk from the Speight's Brewery. Breakfast was great and reasonably priced and parking was free - a real plus for an inner city hotel. Finally, the host was just terrific, friendly and efficient. Overall, great value for money and we'll definitely stay again.

Had a happy stay for four nights. Able to walk where ever around town, it so near the Octagon. Food service was very good, especially the salads. Rooms quite comfortable. Carparking easy. Happy to stay there again.
