Walked into the hotel, met by two friendly receptionists (young ladies) and they directed us to the 9th floor, the view was fabulous from the meeting room and... More

Had dinner and breakfast and the food was generous and very nicely presented. Room OK although I never did find the controls for the A/C. Nice spa... More

I had a mixed impression of this hotel. I will list the pros and cons from my perspective. Pros: Really divinely comfortable bed Excellent WiFi Really lovely staff. Good restaurant. Some dishes a bit bland, but typical of English restaurants, so nothing out of the ordinary in that regard. Well-made, fresh food. Right near the city centre - only one... More

The room was comfortable and clean. It has a nice swimming pool attached. The only problem is the pool and fitness centre shuts around 6pm at the weekend so you... More
