Great location. Friendly staff. Chaotic service at breakfast on first day... orders lost despite multiple polite reminders. Standard room was OK, with very comfortable bed...but it did have a number of odd features : Only one side of the bed had a bedside lamp, so the other person had to read using the main room lights; the sold wooden bed frame sticks out beyond the mattress and is a toe-injury risk; the lighting in the bathroom is hopeless, with only down-lighters in ceiling - your face is cast into shadow if you approach the mirror. Also found the booking system strange, in that the confirmation email just confirms dates and does not give a reiteration of the cost or the room chosen. We could not remember what we had booked (standard / superior/ with or without breakfast etc.).
A pleasant weekend, but I do feel this hotel is a little overpriced ...
