A nice surpruse! A little difficult to find the entrance street but overall worth the effort. The resaurant alone was worth staying there. Wonderful ambiance, food and service. The room was all it needed to be with a comfortable bed and nice view. Would definitely stay there again.

Our room was perfectly outfitted to our needs, with a much-appreciated table and chairs, a very comfortable and thoughtfully, cozily dressed king-size bed, a lovely tea service bar, a...

I recently spent 2 nights in the Schoolhouse, and enjoyed my stay. I arrived by car and was a little by the size of the car park, but I arrived early enough in the day that I had my pick of places. Considering how close it is to the city centre, it's a huge bonus to have free on-site parking,...
