I picked this hotel for two main reasons: the location and the positive trip advisor ratings. Whilst it was generally fine, and a great location, it didn't justify the premium price they charge, relative to similar hotels that I've stayed in nearby.
The check-in was fairly routine. The member of staff was perfectly nice, but new, so it took a little longer than normal. But other than when we came to check-out, we didn't really see any other staff (reception was generally unmanned, so not particularly welcoming).
The bedroom was very small (we'd booked a boutique room), but that was made very clear on the website, so no complaints with that. There were however a few minor niggles, such as the bathroom door not closing properly (which you'd hope is the sort of thing that would be spotted if rooms were regularly inspected).
Overall, the hotel is in a great location, is beautifully decorated, and clean and tidy. So a healthy 4 out of 5 rating seems fair.
