May be we were just unlucky, but our room had no where near the kind of space the ones in the pictures do. It was so small and cramped we had to take it in turns to stand up. The funky Dandy wallpaper, and quirky nik-naks didn't detract from the general pokiness. I wouldn't have minded this if we'd paid budget hotel rates, but at over a hundred pounds a night it seemed over priced. On our first morning we were awoken by an alarm which stopped just as we were about to evacuate - no explanation or apology given. On the second morning the shower didn't work and there was no hot water in the wash basin tap. Great! When we mentioned this on check out, staff said the manager would ring us about it at 10am.....several hours later now, and no call..........
