The staff in this hotel are faultless. From the front desk, to the concierge team (credit to Craig) to the room service team. They make for a truly homely experience. Five stars all round.

Amazing hotel. Housekeeping was good but not perfect. Some simple things could be done better, the bed wasn’t made one day, toiletries and coffee weren’t replaced. On the whole excellent hotel, excellent breakfast, excellent food staff.
