A wonderful historic building, and a privilege to stay there. If I'm honest I'm not sure about the decor. On the one hand the dining rooms have beautiful wooden ceilings that don't seem out of place. The bar, on the other hand, could well be a Starbucks and is as bland as can be. Same with the rooms. Meaningless "sausage" cushions on the bed which just annoy and you have to throw out of the way. Bare wooden floors that are cold on the feet. I put a towel down out of the bathroom. The evening meal was adequate. Breakfast was a laughable test of initiative with complimentary ingredients (for example, milk and cereals) on different tables. I am convinced I spent more time walking around trying to find things than eating. Burners gone out on the warm options. Such a shame, as the staff seemed really pleasant. Okay, so I imagine a former convent is an expensive place to keep going. But so was my room. It should all be better.
