It’s late. I’m tired. Keeping this review short. My stay here was very satisfying. Lovely room, really good blackout drapes, wonderfully powerful shower. Although I’d never stayed before the bar staff and, especially the reception lady treated me like a long standing friend.
Instead of dinner I had two starters. Seafood chowder. Lovely, great depth of flavour and almost solid with fish. Chicken liver pâté was one of the best I’ve ever had.
In bar live music was pitched at a volume level that allowed those dates who wanted to converse to do so without having to shout. That’s how it should be.
Negatives: Radiator in my room was turned off fully. Room was very cold for first few hours as a result. Not a deal breaker.
The corridors to the bedroom were very long and bitterly cold. It’s a poorly designed building in terms of heating efficiency.
Overall: a very pleasant stay that exceeded expectations for what it cost More
