    Smart but disappointing.

    Although a very smart hotel the bedding was very lumpy and uncomfortable and a door alarm on a nearby room at 2am kept me awake most of the evening.

    Well situated near Playhouse Theatre and restaurants, no lifts if you have difficulty with stairs, our room had a blind that didn’t open and a bit mould round shower unit but over all clean. Enjoyed our stay would recommend.
