            loction was excellent, close to historical sites. beutiful building

            Food was extremely poor. The decor in the puplic areas failed to capture the potential of the building. Windows in the bedroom were painted shut and, with no apparent source of ventilation, the room was stuffy,

            The reception staff were very friendly and helpful. The bar was pleasant to have a drink in.

            Breakfast was disorganised. For the amount of people turning up at peak time for breakfast on Sunday morning, the chef did not keep on top of topping up the cooked breakfast leaving people with half full plates going cold waiting for more items to be put out. Fruit bar also ran out - luckily I had already had some by then.
