Arrived on a Saturday evening with a reservation & although the place wasn't busy was left to find my own way to my room - along convoluted corridors and up several flights of stairs, & not offered any help with my baggage. It's a lovely old building, with lots of character and interesting features (except for the bar area - more on that later) , but that's where the positives end.
The room was tiny, with a very small frosted window looking on to a back alley. I'd booked for 2 nights, but was only supplied with toiletries for one shower. Eco-friendly or stingy ?
I paid £65 a night, but everything was done 'on the cheap': when I said I was vegetarian and didn't want meat on my Full English Breakfast - they just left the meat off, and didn't offer any alternatives. And on my second morning, I was staggered to find that breakfast ended at 9.a.m. have travelled a lot on business & never encountered that before.
It seems to be run for the convenience of those who work there rather than for the guests.
