Nice staff, pleasant public areas and very good (but slightly expensive) breakfast. Room was a bit disappointing. It looked very nice and modern, with earthy warm colours and a comfortable mattress but didn't have many creature comforts. Wooden bed frame was dark wood and against the dark carpet I couldn't see it clearly and frequently bashed my legs on the corners. Only 4 hangers in the wardrobe. Had to ask for an extra blanket as felt very cold the first night. Single glazed so had a bit of traffic noise. Bathroom was a wet-room with a shower - looked good and in theory good for disabled visitors but soap dispensers set way too high for anyone in a wheelchair to reach. Nice overhead shower but made most of the floor wet so made it tricky to dry your feet and the travertine tiled floor was cold underfoot. Only one heated radiator so not very warm either. Toilet was fixed too high on the wall. There were tea and coffee-making facilities but no extra toiletries or treats to make you feel like it was a 4-star hotel. I think this hotel has the potential to be very good if a lot more thought is taken over the small details.
