When we arrived the welcome at the front desk was a bit lacking, after we had hauled our cases up the stairs (no concierge) but the hotel itself was quirky, very different and interesting in it's design and history. We booked a balcony room (technically is was a balcony, but not one you could put a chair on!) which overlooked the waterway. It was very different from the average hotel room, with plenty of space, a very comfortable bed, very unusual bathroom, great views and very quiet. Wanted to change some currency at the front desk but they do not offer this service. There is an ATM 400m up the road so went there and collected some Euros.
We ate in the restuarant the first night which was packed and buzzing - great food, a really good atmosphere and excellent service. The waiters and waitresses were great and the restaurant manager took us to a good table and really was concerned that we had a good meal and a good time. Breakfasts were good with plenty of choice, but limited service and quite different from the buzz and cheerfulness of the night before.
We were on a 2 night stop which made a lovely change from the usual city centre hotels. We would go back and stay in the same room..
