We found Number Four to be a lovely, newer boutique hotel with comfortable beds, wonderful linens and towels, great lighting and some very nice touches (a complimentary bottle of wine waiting in the refrigerator). Our room was smallish - it was difficult to walk around one side of the bed - but clean and comfortable. The hotel is not for people with limited mobility/difficulty with stairs but otherwise wonderful. In addition, the common spaces are warm and cozy and conducive to relaxing and reading.
The problem with Number Four (and what kept it from being a 'five') was that the check-in process can best be described as unwelcoming and snooty. We were greeted with "you gave us the wrong email address and we were unable to send you a confirmation". (In reality, we attempted repeatedly to provide our email address but the lady who took our reservation (over the telephone) had a strong accent and the exchange was frustrating). Further exchange at check-in can best be described as cold and dismissive and it resulted in our restaurant booking being 2 hours later than we'd requested. The lack of welcome at arrival set a tone for some disappointment. The restaurant food was fantastic.
