We booked this hotel because of the location and good reviews but room was tiny-the smallest room we have ever stopped in! The wardrobe space was way too small with only 4 coat hangers for 2 of us to share with 4 day's worth of clothes. However, despite feeling disappointed with the room we settled down to sleep thinking everything would feel better in the morning! What followed was the worst night's sleep I have ever had- noise from people shouting in the streets to church bells ringing throughout the night ending with a lorry outside shifting furniture very noisily at 7am! After breakfast we checked out and found another hotel which seems much more peaceful- fingers crossed! Think of the hotel as a trendy youth hostel then perhaps you won't be as disappointed as we were but for £200 a night we expect much better. However the staff were very accommodating and helpful
