We arrived by train at Central Station and the hotel was about 2 minutes walk away - so convenient.
It's a bit odd, as it's on the top floor of a commercial block, but it's fabulous.
We were greeted at reception, given a tour of the facilities, then taken to our room and plied with cupcakes and hot drinks. The staff are wonderful. So helpful. Nothing is too much trouble.
The rooms are tastefully decorated and all the towels and bed linens are top quality. Sky TV with all the movie and sports channels.
They do a lovely 3 course evening meal which is different every evening and their slogan is 'Don't eat alone, join us for supper' so wonderful for solo travelers.
Very nice breakfast - especially loved the honey and spelt bread which comes in fresh from a Bavarian bakery every morning. I asked for a veggie breakfast and got one.
From our window we could see the Lighthouse Centre. So convenient for everything.
Only slight down side was from my husband who prefers his coffee hotter than they serve.
We will be back
