On the plus side the staff were friendly and helpful, the hotel romantic, the food good, and we were given a free upgrade to a very large executive room. However we were very cold. The central heating was only turned on from 08:30 (half an hour after breakfast started) to 10:00 and then again from 17:00 to no later than 23:00, and the radiators never really got properly warm. It is not just that we were having to get up in the cold, but everything in the room was cold to the touch. We requested and were given a small oil electric filled radiator which helped but still left everything cold. The Brassiere restaurant was cold, the adjacent bar had two TVs playing music not to our taste very loud. Street noise would be a problem for light sleepers.
