Not just a hotel - it mentions a replacement pub/restaurant on the ground floor. Looks good to me (at a very casual first glance). Probably a better idea than the original replacement, which was a pub...

Quick warning - I was assaulted this morning on Dacres Road, not too far from the Dietrich Bonhoffer church. At about 07;00 a man hit me out of the blue, with no warning or provocation. He knocked me...
