Hot as well as cold options and a swanky coffee machine. Most of the staff have changed but nice to see the odd familiar face, such... More

We booked a suite this time on the top floor. It was enormous with panoramic views but seemed rather bare. There were two comfortable sofas but no table (I see there is one in the photographs). There was just one luggage rack There was a desk and one chair. The bathroom was fine with plenty of surfaces for our things... More

Spent two long weeks there in September, just got around to writing the review so I hope my delay didn’t warn you in advance.

Tried booking online but they kept rejecting... More
