We booked this hotel at the last minute and paid £160 for a room which we were warned would suffer extreme noise until 1am. They didn't tell us that we would them suffer the noise from the kitchen extract which ran along outside of our window.
The room was small and sparsely furnished - one plastic chair, one plastic lamp which did not work (both meant to bring a retro touch to the room), one glass with one bottle of water. The bathroom had lovely design features and good lighting but as one reviewer has said - you took your life in your hands trying to climb over the edge of the bath. The basic toiletries provided were dispensed from bottles attached to the walls - not what is shown on the web site.
We are now aware of what 'pantry breakfast' means - a very basic continental breakfast with a water bath to boil your own eggs.
The overall experience was certainly not value for money and I query how they can charge their highest rate for this room (103).
