The hotel itself is a very nice old building with 14ft ceiling in the upper floors rooms. The lady at the front desk was extremely polite and helpful. Making sure that we had everything we needed in the room etc. Honestly it was WELL WORTH the price. The bed was a little firmer than what I am used to, but it was comfortable.

I liked very little. Broken venetian blind meant we were woken at 6.30am by sunlight glaring into our eyes. Room very small. Cheaply appointed. Overpriced. I expected more. Disappointed.
