Previous reviewers wax lyrical about this hotel and whilst it has some good points I can't really understand this mass enthusiasm. We only stayed here for one night and the room allocated to us was tiny, stained with water damage and seemed to be for the use of the disabled, although I can't imagine how anyone with a wheelchair could negotiate the very limited space. The ensuite bathroom had a wet room type shower which was good but the toilet and sink were so close together that going to the loo meant sitting sideways! Very odd.
The staff have been much praised in this hotel and with some justification. They are very friendly and helpful. We were "guided in" by the receptionist by phone as we couldn't find the place due to the scaffolding in front of the building and at breakfast and checkout everyone was lovely.
Breakfast was selfservice and had all the usual stuff which was very nice although, I didn't have the cooked breakfast, my husband did and he rated it highly.
This hotel gets lots of things right (but the room did feel a bit like a Swedish prison cell) but its billing as something quite luxurious is way off beam. It is functional and friendly. Which for one night was ok.
