The decor of this hotel is dark and dramatic, but interesting and very well done. The staff were great, we appreciated their friendly helpful service. Our only visit to the dining room (which is also beautifully done) was to eat a hasty buffet continental breakfast which was adequate but nothing special.
Our room on the first floor could be accessed by carefully climbing a challenging narrow staircase or elevator via the kitchen. However, the building is very old and we thought these little quirks added to the charm. Our room was classed in the 'good' category and overlooked the large and lovely garden area. While the room itself was as charming as the rest of the hotel, we found it uncomfortably small. The bathroom contained only the shower and toilet and nothing else. Two small washbasins, mirror and hairdryer were situated at one end of the cabinet opposite the bed, with nothing to screen off from the rest of the room and very little space to place our personal toiletries. We found it awkward negotiating around the bed and our luggage (only 3 small bags) in a room better suited for just one occupant. The lighting in both bathroom and bedroom was also extremely dim, so in addition to the purple and black decor and gloomy weather during our stay, the room was very dark.
