The hotel was very pretty, very sophisticated and classy. Before staying I read some reviews stating that the rooms were tiny which had me worried, however I found out for myself that this was not the case. Yes, the rooms were slightly smaller than some hotels I had previously been to but they were not as small as some reviews...

I've had about 6 2-night stays here, which speaks for itself. Comfortable rooms (some would benefit from an update tough). Good points - rooms, (TV and WiFi are good, has a bathroom rather than a shower room), staff and location. Food and bar are average.
