We booked a king balcony room at the cost of £185 for BB to have a nice relaxing break. The room itself was nice, but we couldn't use the balcony as there was a wedding below us and guests were directly below the balcony - they could see us sitting on the bed and we could see them, we had to keep all the doors and windows closed because of the noise from the music and guests. It got worse between 11pm and 1 am we were disturbed by other guests who thought it was a good idea to stand in the hall talking and laughing and then allow the door to bang shut (door closers need looking at as they make a really loud noise). We ate in the brasserie and the food was ok- my steak was good quality and cooked nicely. Throughout our stay the staff were enthusiastic and courteous, they were trying hard but it was obvious they were inexperienced. The hotel was very clean throughout. However there is no way they can justify charging £185 for one nights stay when you compare to what other hotels are offering in terms of facilites - spa etc., service and quality of food.
