The only criticism from me was the location. I read all the reviews that said about the location but unless you stay there it is not meaningful............it is in a residential street so away from the hustle and bustle entirely. It is a good brisk walk and quite hilly in both directions a taxi is an option about 8.00 to the station.
The rooms are very spacious, the bathroom was lovely. It is spotlessly clean and nice and light. The bedrooms are quite dim as all the light is from lamps this could be addressed in my view.
Breakfast was lovely beautifully presented and huge choices. We had dinner in both the bar and restaurant- as a really fussy eater I found something on each occassion although it is quite a limited choice.
Staff were all polite and helpful if anything I would say they could be less starchy - a little too formal for me more chatty but perhaps this is the preference. All very polite. Rooms were thoroughly cleaned daily.
