      Pros and Cons

      A good location for us to travel by train and visit Richard111 Centre and van Gogh exhibition.Bar/lounge pleasant and staff helpful and welcoming. Sadly we were given a very cold room with a non functioning radiator. The second room was the same but number 3 was ok. We met another guest who told us the heating was down in part of the hotel.
