I booked to stay in room 1 for my husbands birthday it was such a beautiful and clean suite. The private terrace was beautiful but due to the weather we were unable to use it 😥the staff were friendly and very accommodating of our needs.

We stayed for a theatre trip & cannot speak highly of the quality & cleanliness of both the accommodation & the food. Amazing value for money & in the centre of the City too! We will most definitely return.
