3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Lovely hotel but some niggles.
The hotel was nicely decorated and rooms were cosy and stylish. All staff were friendly and welcoming. Comfortable beds and lovely bathroom products. The room itself was noisy- both from staff ‘out back’ and from a constant whirring overnight (possibly the boiler) which meant I struggled to sleep in room 4. The room was warm and as windows don’t open, needed to use aircon which added to the noise. Reasonably priced minibar, unfortunately no sugar provided for the complimentary tea and Nespresso (we could have asked for this but it was morning and we were due down to breakfast anyway). Breakfast service was slow but food was delicious and good-sized portions.
