Very poor expensive breakfast. Coffee machine broken, food either cold or running out. The room itself was comfortable, clean and tidy, so no complaints there. But the breakfast for £15 was a disgrace!

Really quirky and totally different hotel but absolutely fantastic. A cut above all the rest. Great bed and didn't hear a sound all night which is rare especially when it's so busy. Loved the amazing decor too.
