Restaurant good, rooms very poor
Hotel had just reopened after lockdown and a refurb.the bar and restaurant were stunning ,beautifully done. The room wàs not ! Freezing cold, badly scuffed walls, badly chipped tile in the bathroom, toilet roll holder hanging off the wall. When you turned the tap on we got soaked.The sash window banged all night. Restaurant good & we had a nice dinner, we were the only residents so felt bad at breakfast when a waiter and chef had to be there just for us.

2/5 Poor

Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Basic accommodation. Very few parking spaces so we had to park on the road nearby. We were told that they weren't serving food and they recommended a restaurant (Zim) which was closed. We ended up finding a nearby Italian restaurant that was cute but the food wasn't very good. Nearby pub/drinking options but they all closed quite early for the weekend. The person who checked us in knew that we were going out for a late dinner and didn't tell us how to get in so it took us about 5mins before we found a door in the back that worked with our key. Bathroom smelled awful (sewage smell but cleared when we opened the door wide and sprayed the toilet). Only two plugs and none near the bed. Nop hair dryer or iron. Lacking a bit of homeiness or character.

A cheerful welcome, great breakfast.
In a busy and vibrant location. A cheerful welcome awaited us. Room was large and even though it had four additional lamps it was a bit dark. Proper reading lamps would be better. Pleasant shower room. A noisy road but that can't be helped. Stairways grubby. A great, well cooked breakfast with vegetarian option also. Downstairs bar interesting decor.
