The hotel is ideally located as only 5 mins from the train station and then a very short walk to all the major attractions. When we arrived I was very pleasantly surprised - I could tell we were going to enjoy our stay, and I wasn't wrong.
Our room was clean, spacious and very comforable. The bathroom was luxurious, and the toiletries were really good too. We had a drink in the hotel bar and sat outside on our first evening. The drinks are pricey, but you get a great selection of nibbles so it is worth splashing out. We had a great couple of nights sleep, the hotel was so quiet.
The only downside was the rather rude lady who was running breakfast. We went to breakfast 15 mins before the end of service, and things were starting to run very low (no fresh fruit left etc). My husband asked if he could have some eggs (as they had run out) and she made a point of looking at her watch, shrugged her shoulders and then headed off muttering something. The eggs were delivered shortly after, and were delivered with the same bad attitude. I don't think this is the level of service this hotel would want to deliver, as it was very good service in all other areas. It did make us feel uncomfortable though, especially as the same miserable lady was running breakfast on our 2nd morning!!
It was a minor issue though, and don't let it put you off what is otherwise a really excellent hotel
