Having read all the fab reviews I SO SO wanted to love this place!!
It does have a lovely style, it's very central, and the little touches (cupcakes/smarties etc) were a lovely touch. Helpful staff, tasty breakfast, nice toiletires to us and bed linen and mattress to die for!! However...really quirky location....on a noisy street on the 6th floor. Room not huge and bit spartan....epecially with the stripped floors and super high ceilings....maybe a rug, pot plant or a picture on the wall would help...?! Bathroom pod really great idea but tiny space. Felt like whoever had cleaned was in a hurry and had cut corners....scruffs and marks on the walls, paint a bit chipped, hair in the shower, super dirty remote control and dirt on the back of the bathroom door (it's slide one so it wouldn't be visible if the cleaners were in there with the door open!) No milk, hairdryer or coffee in the room. I wasn't offered these when I arrived but later asked at reception and got quite possibly the BEST haridryer ever to use!! :-)
I feel bit reluctant to write these comments as I think the concept of the hotel is fab and I don't want to sound super fussy, but for the price it seems important to mention. It defintely felt like a space for a one night stop in town rather than a holiday destination space to rest and relax...
I really hope I just got the hotel on a fair-weather day....I think it's on it's way to being fabulous but teeny way to go yet
P.s. if you're booking a room might be worth asking for a station side room....the street at the front was NOISY on the night I was there!
