Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
We really liked the beautiful building, great location, pleasent communal areas and very friendly staff. But the room looked dated, had an annoying running toilet, half cold airlocked towel rail, no dental kits were supplied and we found the parking charge at the end of stay a bit insulting.
