The main problem we found was it is very busy and very noisy. We stayed on a Saturday night and the bar was packed, the street outside noisy and the... More

Enjoyed a rendez-vous drink/meal at the White Star, was lovely albeit minor issues of table not clean etc. The food and hot beverages were good, as was the service provided, and the cost turned-out to be fine !

However they were short staffed and the pub was cold. The food when it arrived was a mixed bag, 3 of us really enjoyed out food but 2 were a little disappointed.... More

Stayed here one night. Hotel had an issue with no hot water, but had managed to secure another room nearby if we so wished. Big tick. Then also offered a very good discount if we still wished to stay here. Another big tick. We decided to stay here and with the aid of the four kettles that were delivered to... More

Great apartment, location and amenities. There are not enough outlet to charge 2-3 devices. The stair is a challenge if you is not travelling light. Very good breakfeast. Waffles with pecan is a sin..
