Good hotel overall. Comfy beds, nice atmosphere and nice furnishings. Just be warned there room types may be inconsistent. I booked the room above the standard room and was checked into this tiny shoe box room. I complained and was moved to a room four times the size which looked like the pictures represented on the internet for my room type booked. I am not sure if they were oversold so tried to be sneaky and downgrade me but it is slightly worrying if a property classifies a room a third of the size as the same category. I wouldn’t stay here again if I could not be guaranteed consistency.
I feel this may because of their boutique factor with all rooms being unique but they should still all be represented in the same size and comfort level but anyway otherwise good!
