The location is great but somehow this hotel was not all that I had expected. We had booked a large room and it was pretty much as shown on the website. However we were shocked to find one wall had been drawn on! I asked reception if we could be moved and was told it was "artwork" by a famous artist drawn on the wall after a few cocktails! Well art is of course always in the eye of the beholder, but we thought it looked ugly and it really spoiled the room for us. Others may love it.
The room was comfortable, the bathroom bright and spacious, but more storage space would have been useful and in general it just felt tired and dated.
Breakfast was very good with a large selection of cold dishes and hot foods cooked to order.
This is a good hotel, but I didn't feel we got value for money here.
