We had a discounted voucher for an evening meal so while we were in the city , we made a last minute decision to call there. As it happened it was the last evening to submit the voucher and the restaurant was busy. Despite not having a booking - which is part of T &C s - we were accommodated... More

The bed was only okay, the mattress wasn't great, it wasn't awful but I expected a bit more from a suite, and the duvet wasn't big enough for the mattress. The bathroom was gorgeous... More
