This is such a lovely building, re-built from the ground up and completed in 2010. However, there are a few things which need to be pointed out. We stayed for 2 nights. There was no shower in the room, only a bath, which would have been fine had it been clean. I used a spare towel to clean it, and was disgusted to see a black scum coating the towel where it had been used to clean. Yuk. I also noticed quite a lot of dust in the room and cobwebs on the lights in the bar area. Maybe I am being too fussy, but this is basic housekeeping.
We ate at the bar on the two nights we were staying - the food was ok, nothing special and a bit under-seasoned. But my boyfriend ordered a steak which was superb. Breakfast is quite slow coming, however we did not have any issues with this and it was nice not to feel rushed.Something to bear in mind if you have an early start planned.
Overall, we had this on a KGB deal, and it was a good price. Had the basics been done well then the feedback would have been great because it is a lovely building in a lovely spot.
One other thing that we noted was that the staff - although very nice - were a bit unprofessional. They were loudly discussing an issue with a member of staff, within earshot of paying customers. Good management, housekeeping and front of house would sort all of these issues out though, such a pity because the place could be fantastic, and one thing that we did like was the relaxed atmosphere.
