I stayed one night here on a business trip. I wish I'd spent more time in the hotel but unfortunately work got in the way (darn work ha ha), Hotel is lovely! Rooms are welcoming and bathroom is clean and simply decorated. I loved the dark chocolate decor. The TV was a bit hard to find at first - it took me a while to realise that the mirrored wall in front of me doubled up as a Philips TV! I discovered it as I was holding the remote looking around whilst thinking "what kind of a hotel doesn't have a TV?!". The bed was SUPER comfy - four bouncy pillows - I'm definitely investing in those for my bedroom! There were bathrobes in the bathroom but I didn't use it - no time!. There are tea/coffee making facilities as well as a safe in the wardrobe. A desk and a chair should you need to work, lots of lighting in the room and black out curtains. I was on the ground floor in room 104 - despite this being very close to reception there was no noise to be heard. Perfect. Watch out for checkout time - I wasn't happy that their guide in the rooms states 11.30 but they say that checkout is 11 - bit misleading. Other than this, can't fault the hotel and the location. Entrance is in a lovely courtyard style. Everything is walking distance to the centre (around 15 mins depending on how quickly you walk) it actually takes longer by taxi!
