Staff could not have been more friendly and the rooms are nicely furnished, large enough. The bistro serves excellent food and the service is outstanding.

          Reception too hot and small bathroom &. The breakfast was bad.

        • Great location near station and ideally tucked away on a quiet cobbled street. Hotel and staff very friendly, an ideal venue for marathon runners. The lobby was cosy, jacqui on reception was lovely and the rooms were clean and spacious. Coffee was real and delicious.

          Lounge area slighlty small and could be very busy at times, the shower curtain stuck to you and the water spilled out onto the floor.
