Few days in a beautiful hotel. Fantastic view from the room (508). Perfectly located. Several pubs and restaurants nearby. Castle few hundreds meters away. Downtown in 10 min (walking). Friendly staff. Excellent breakfast. Difficult to ask for more. Do not hesitate!

My partner & I stayed here for one night & would thoroughly recommend it. We arrived & got checked in straight away & had someone take us to our room (would recommend this as the lift can be a bit confusing to use as you need to use your room card!). Our room was lovely and couldn't fault it. We... More

I was booked into the hotel as a thank-you present with a bonus facial and massage the following morning. The staff certainly made you feel welcome from the doorperson to the Spa. I have previously stayed twice at The Glasshouse and noticed the staff treatment of guests at G&V was much more friendly. The room had a modern sophisticated feel,... More

When me and my partner stayed here it was back in March when it was the "missoni" we did have a lovely time but it was just missing something for me. The staff were lovely, especially the bar staff. They went out of there way to make up cocktails that were not on the menu, recommended good restaurants in the... More

We stayed here for two nights in December. Lovely hotel and the staff could not have been nicer! We used their Valet parking which was great. The only thing I didn’t like about the parking was that we were unable just to nip out to our car. If we wanted anything brought in then one of the staff went to... More

Stayed for one night at this modern, clean, immaculate hotel on an overnight trip to visit the equally fabulous Christmas markets. On arrival, we were early, the friendly staff looked after our bags, gave us a map and directions to the markets saying they would ring if our room was ready before three. when we returned we went to our...
