Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Room was modern and clean but a touch on the small side. This is to be expected in a historic converted building. Only downside was the noise from someone pouring empty glass bottles into the bin at 6.00am which waked us up. Apart from that it was a great stay.
