Disliked: Amenities
Breakfast per person is 32 pounds. This is not worth it. Also, I only ordered a egg omelette, and my friend ordered pancakes, and we were charged a total of 64 pounds. Not worth the deal at all. Place was clean, great location, beautiful room, and friendly people.

Lovely hotel
Very nice hotel, friendly and efficient staff, lovely clean room with everything you need. Great breakfast. The only complaint I have is that the bed was hard so didn't get a very good night's sleep.
