Plenty of Tea / Coffee complete with kettle in plain sight on the dresser as you walk into the room, making it very welcoming after a hard drive and a very disappointing stay...

From the moment we walked in to this hotel, we received the most amazing welcome. The staff are so professional and friendly. The food was first class and we are looking forward to going back in the near future. The rooftop bar is really special too.

I last reviewed this hotel in 2011 after a very pleasant stay. Some time later I was very disappointed to hear that it had been a victim of the economic crash and had been closed. So very disappointing! However since then the hotel has been re-opened under new ownership and myself and my partner couldn't wait to re-visit and see...
