Very nice old building (used to be a sugar factory) that has been converted into a Hotel. Lovely entrance and Courtyard area, traditional bar area and pleasant restaurant.
We stayed in one of the suites in the "loft area" which had it's own Terrace. It was a very large room which was well equipped, with an equally large bathroom. But the room was very dark (ok, it's an old building) but with very little lighting which made getting ready for the evening a little difficult. Bed and bedding were comfortable and clean.
The Hotel has all of the constraints of a conversion, with long walks to rooms, twists and turns, and a couple of tiny lifts. I'm sure that the Hotel do all they can to cater for people with disabilities but this is not the easiest place to get around if this is a consideration for you or your family.
There was a wedding going on when we were there and I suspect that this is popular venue for this type of event. There parties tend to "take over" when they're on so worth checking if you are looking for a peaceful evening in the Hotel.
Service throughout was excellent. Our evening meal was pretty good, not outstanding though. A knowledgeable sommelier and pleasant staff in the restaurant (though we were somewhat forgotten about at the end of the meal - why does this happen so often even in good restaurants?)
A good location near the city centre but parking is very limited. There is a grotty NCP across the road - not somewhere I would want to leave my car. Worth arriving early to nab a space in front of the hotel if you can.
So all in all a pleasant stay, and a Hotel we would recommend to a point - in our opinion it is expensive for what it is so if you get a good deal you not be disappointed.
