Fabulous 8.8 From 352 reviews

Good 6.0
Nice but the rooms Small.
The rooms are very small not practical for 2 adults with luggage. We were really cramed there was almost no room down one side of the queen bed. The bed was really very comfortable but the blankets are heavy and make sleeping a bit stuffy and hot. There is air conditioning but ours didn’t cool the room enough. The over bath shower had good pressure and constant temperature. There’s a coffee machine in the room. Breakfast is good and service was far more relaxed than my last visits, but I don’t understand the close proximity being sat right next to others when the other tables are mostly empty. The hotel is in an excellent location and the bed one of the most comfortable I’ve slept in this year, but for us the rooms are just too small.

Night away
The hotel itself is beautiful, the bar, bistro and common areas are really well keep and beautifully decorated and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. However we were disappointed with our room. It was very small and a little cramped. My husband and I are both fairly slim but found it very difficult to get in and out of the shower/ bath. The glass door could only open a little before hitting off the sink. There was a lot of noise from some sort of machine outside our window and a lot of loud talking and glass bottles being thrown into bins both at night and in the morning. We assume our room was over the service area yard. There was no air vent in the bathroom either. We were disappointed overall with the room as we opted to pay a little more to stay here rather than other hotels that we are familiar with.

Professionals at their job. Beautiful hotel and centrally located. Professional service from the moment you walk into the lobby. It deserves your loyalty.
