The hotel is convenient for the Cathedral, the Castle, the river, the old bridges. The service was excellent. The on-street parking is easy enough and the location safe, we found parking places to be readily available.
We stayed in the Cruella room for three nights. This is a fantastic room, very spacious, the bathroom/shower-room/sauna-room is also very spacious.
This is a totally one-off and over-the-top room, absolutely wonderful. A liking for black, black, and black (and diamante) helps. It is a completely in-your-face black experience. Pull the black velvet curtains back and you're in your own private world. There are a number of whimsical touches. The sleigh bed is huge and comfortable. Fittings are first class.
Breakfasts were well cooked and presented. We also looked in the Boudoir (didn't stay in it), this is also a fine looking room.
