This is a brand new location - we remember it as an old shopping arcade - and they have done an excellent job in converting the Georgian building. However, the only way I describe our visit is to say it was like staying in a comfortable, well equipped bat cave! A large number of rooms are located around a narrow atrium which means no natural light at all - so lights on all the time. Some children would probably love this - but together with no fresh air (none of the windows can be opened) means it really was difficult for us. Even the dining area has no natural light and looks like an underground cellar. But, the beds were the best we have ever slept (including our own), the bedding was excellent and the fittings are all new and fit for the purpose - just remember to ask for a room with windows overlooking the street and daylight!
