      • The location of our room was good, i liked the quirkiness of the hotel was consistent across all parts of the hotel and the staff were friendly and helpful. The bed was wonderfully comfortable, food in the restaurant was fantastic as was the wine list and the cocktails.

      • In a quiet location, waited a good ten minutes to be served and the hotel is modern and comfortable. The rooms are very comfy and are done out in a typical malmaison style, bars a short walk away.

        The building itself is very old and historic, staff could be more polite. Most uncomfortable bed i ve ever to sleep on.

      • The location was excellent and other than thaose things, the hotel was sufficient. Staff were friendly and helpful, the room was very comfortable, the service in the restaurant was a huge letdown.

        The bar downstairs lacked a bit of atmosphere and was quite expensive, bed was too hard for me, the wine in the minibar was insultingly bad.
