    not great

    Lovely hotel, service was just okay but could have been better. Rooms and halls were cold, awful construction noise and also noise outside of the room all night and people shouting - not sure if this came from the bar but it was very loud right outside our room. No shower gel or basics in the bathroom.

    5/5 Excellent

    Wonderful stay, had no complaints. The dining room served an odd dinner but the bar staff were top notch and made me a custom cocktail based upon my specific tastes which was terrific! Great time was had. Rooms were comfy, the amenities were high quality and the staff were friendly and helpful.
