Classy place. Welcoming reception. The property has been described well in previous reviews. Room 362 was adequately equipped, and warm enough on a chilly evening. Free coffee, tea and biscuits downstairs. Conveniently located, close to central station. Good bed but pillows too soft for my liking - unsure whether they have alternatives.

Fantastic historic charm with all the modern amenities. interesting art throughout the building, a totally gracious and attentive staff and each room is uniquely decorated to reflect a sense of an historic landmark that had been carefully planned for the comfort of the modern traveller. Great, convenient location adjacent to transportation and easy walking.

We were overall very satisfied, the interior and the breakfast was very good, we loved the free tea and cakes. I would improve the cleanliness of the hotel rooms as we had a lof of dust and hair under the beds.
