Poor -- would not stay again.
Very poor room layout, no desk/ dressing table to put on makeup or style hair. No power point near mirror for hair styling. The windows are very poor and as its next to a main road it almost impossible to get a nights sleep. The rooms have been designed by some interior designer and are lovely to look at but are incredibly impractical. I did ask if any staff had ever tried staying in the room.

Lovely hotel with friendly staff
Staff very friendly and accommodating, great food in the restaurant (which has a lovely ambiance and fire). Ideal place for my wife and I to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life and spend an uninterrupted evening together.
