Exceptional 10.0
Unique hotel in a wonderful area. Breakfast was amazing.
Thomas, usOther trip
Good 6.0
Room basic - not great
Room didn’t look like picture on website . Carpet filthy . Only one towel. Car park outside window so noise and lights all night / not worth the money. Was like a basic travel lodge.
Jodie, gb1 night trip
Very Good 8.0
Stylish room - food disappointing
Food at ‘noisy’ Coppa restaurant at hotel was very average - avoid the vegan burger - tasteless mush resembling steak tartar. They obviously don’t eat everything they cook themselves as this vegan burger would have been taken off the menu. It’s so awful! Starters were better. Rooms very comfortable with stylish design. Only Option of road or car park view for the cosy rooms is what it is - would choose garden view if staying again.
