Disgraceful for the money !!”
There had been a water leak from the room above, which had left a big stain on the ceiling, not what you expect when you pay a premium rate. The walls were covered in scuff marks too. Very disappointing !! and would suggest booking elsewhere.

An excellent stay, lovely room and great facilities. ”
The location is perfect if you want to get away form the business of Old Town, the only small suggestion, is that walking into town is uphill, but there is a bus stop outside the hotel, and the walk itself is a 10 minute jaunt. A great stay, would go back again.

World class concierge and perfect location”
It wasn’t the cheapest hotel but facilities were very good. The staff however were absolutely first class - from an attentive concierge to a ‘mothering’ waitress. Definitely made the stay much more enjoyable, thank you.

Comfort & cleaniness ”
Welcoming comfortable & luxury bed after a day of touring. Room is spacious & clean. Only downside was the shower with inconsistent temperature, it switches between cold, Luke warm to extreme hot water and the cycle just repeats itself again and again despite not adjusting the water heater at all.

The bed was really comfy but the room was in need of a bit of redecoration.”
The bed was really comfy but the room was just too hot. We had to keep the window open so the noise from the adjacent construction site did wake us up quite early. We would have used the air conditioning but that was just too noisy. The room needs a bit of redecoration as the carpet was ripped & the sink was cracked. The room was a good size as was the bed. The staff were very nice except for the nighttime barman who was a bit grumpy. I would stay again, if the price was right.

No complaints and everything you'd expect from a quality hotel. It's a 10 minute walk into the centre of town though, so it can be a bit of a mission when the wind and rain are threatening to ruin your day (as is often the case in the UK)!

New Years Eve 2 night stay ”
Location. Helpfulness of staff. Food
On arrival of our 2 night stay on New Year's Eve, room smelt fusty and later found carpet wet near bathroom door. Told staff following morning. Whilst out, carpet cleaned but still smelt fusty on return. We were moved to another room and given a complimentary 3 course evening meal and drinks. Cannot fault staff helpfulness both on the reception and duty manager. Food excellent but wouldn't have paid the price for the set menu (£25 ea) Expensive stay £207 a night, bed only (breakfast £15 ea extra). Car parking extra £20 per night. With all their help to please, will definitely stay again, price dependant.
