The room was quiet and spacious. Hotel bar was excellent & the reception when you walk in is just wow. Breakfast was well organised (but a little cold) -didn't spoil anything though and we will be back for another visit.

Having stayed previously, and having had a wonderful time, I was so disappointed, our room was on the1st floor with the train line no more than 10 feet from our window. Trains ran throughout the night every 15 minutes making sleep impossible. I realise there is nothing the hotel can do in relation to train timetables, but there is nothing on their site to advise people of this. Overall the worst night's sleep I have had at any hotel previously, which ruined what should have been a really enjoyable stay

Lovely hotel with cool decor and a great breakfast. Staff needed a nudge to make the room up a few times and huge bathroom on the top floor was freezing. But overall a nice place to stay! :)
