Review Jurys Inn
Jurys Inn on Brewery Wharf has just undergone a £1.5 million refurbishment, making it one of the most modern and stylish hotels in the city.
Visit here in the evening and the skyline views from its rooms are magical giving a whole new perception to our city. Its spacious lobby and tasteful décor adds a new classy but individual dimension to what, as a travel writer I usually call, “plastic city hotels”. There can be no doubt that Jurys as a hotel is impressive, especially the furnishings and layout of its restaurant.

Liz Coggins discovers the ethereal and decadent atmosphere that is Browns
Waiters scurry back and forth in their long white starched aprons. The sound of clinking glasses, a pianist playing the ultimate mood music and the click click of footsteps on the marble floor and a buzz of conversation create a wonderful cacophony of sound.

During the week it’s a place frequented by city dwellers too tired or who can’t be bothered to cook, professionals seeking a quick meal with their colleagues after working late, groups of students looking for filling, good value night out food and cinema goers wanting a pre or pot viewing meal.
Situated in the old bank building in Park Row, it was a Wednesday evening when my friend and I visited. And I must say we would have been tempted to leave if we were not on a “mission” by the lack of a meeting and greeting service.
