The building itself is very interesting and in a quiet location. The rooms are nice to look at and the service is great, from the reception through to the housekeepers. However, it feels like an establishment which is primarily a wedding/conference/special event venue; there is no full time kitchen - which means you can only eat at set times. The bathrooms are nice and well appointed (little soaps, shaving kit etc), but dark. The outdoor seating area is great and the coffee is good, but again, not fully staffed outside of certain hours. The breakfast service is great and what food there is, is good, but the choices are limited.
for completeness: Shaving kit, hairdryer, toothbrush, slippers are provided (even a chocoloate on the pillow), free wifi & parking.
We enjoyed our stay and would recommend it, however, with the caveat that you be prepared to enjoy the location, views and the architecture of the building, and forego expectations of room service, a lavish breakfast ( or an afternoon snack.)
