A gem of a place
This is a wonderful hotel, with excellent staff, fantastic breakfasts and in a fabulous location. The only reason for the poor comfort score was due to our room being small, overly hot and next to the lift which was noisy. We did ask for an alternative room but this was this could not be accommodated as they were fully booked. We would definitely stay again but my advice - avoid room 20!

Room without an expected view
I realise it was a late booking. Great hotel and area. But I didn't expect a room with a view just looking over roof-tops and fire escapes.

Lovely, friendly hotel, perfect base for exploring
It's the second time I've stayed here. The rooms are beautiful, the staff are very friendly and helpful. The food is great and it is the perfect place for walking in the local area. Overall can't fault this hotel and I can a lovely break
