Lovely room, huge (and very comfortable bed), big bathroom and really clean. Left one morning for breakfast and by the time we came back, the room was tidied and bed was made. Very close to everything and in a nice part of town. Lots of choice at breakfast and drinks wise at the bar.
Only two small things which would have made our stay perfect. One, being the shower in our room (48). This was a little slow to get going and not very powerful. A couple of times the water went cold but soon went hot again. The other thing was breakfast. Our first morning, this was faultless, with attentive staff and quick service. The Sunday morning however was quite slow and the hot breakfast not as well cooked. Appreciate it was very busy, but one of us had to send the eggs back for being very underdone. The tomatoes were also burnt and these were not re-cooked when the plate was taken away for the eggs to be cooked more. Staff had no problem dealing with this.
These were only two very small issues, and was only disappointed with breakfast on morning two because it was so perfect the morning before.
Neither of these would ever put us off staying here again. It really was a lovely hotel we would very much look forward to staying in and recommending to others in the future. Thank you for a lovely time and amazing nights' sleep!
