The hotel is in a busy street but this presented no problems as the car was valet parked. Checking in was efficiently carried out by the very pleasant Guest Manager John (?). We wre delighted with our room which was spacious and had plenty of storage space, stting area and desk. Free wifi access was automatically provided on check in. The huge bathroom was amazing with retro bath, twin washbasins, a large shower big fluffy towels and bathrobes. The large fridge was there for our own drinks and there was plenty of ice.
The hotel has an inner courtyard which forms part of the restaurant. We had dinner in the restaurant and the food was good but not outstanding. Next morning we were greeted by name by Guest Manager who showed us to our table. Breakfast was good; a buffet for cereals, fruit, cold meat, cheese different breads etc and plenty of choice on the cooked menu.
We had a most pleasant stay in a hotel with lots of old world charm with modern ammenities.
