Good 7.4 From 63 reviews

Good 6.0
Pleasant staff
tge best thing about the hotel was the staff. Everyone from the front desk to the kitchen staff was attentive and kind. We had a few special requests and there was nothing that wasn’t possible. We had a problem with a room we got initially but they found a solution pretty fast. The building is from 1870 and understandably it is not in the perfect condition. Yet, the rooms are neat and clean. The bathroom and showers are shared and rooms are quite small, but all in all it not much of inconvenience. All in all we had a very pleasant experience.

Great staff and location
Lovely staff, very friendly and helpful. Very easy access to the West End. If I have one suggestion, it would be that it would be nice to have more vegan options at breakfast.
