Superb period building, very nicely decorated, room was clean with nice touches (coffee, tea, water, slippers, toothbrush & paste). Outstanding staff who always ask how your stay is going and if you need anything else. Great filling breakfast. I didn't have any other meals at the restaurant, but did have a nice glass of wine! And when I asked for a taxi to be called, and it didn't show up, a staff drove me to the pier so I wouldn't be late. Now that is service.
