Overall this is a good hotel and we would stay there again, but there were one or two problems. We had booked a superior room but the first one we were shown had the view obscured by an abuttment and was so tiny that we asked for another. The second room was slightly bigger, with twin beds (? a "superior" room). We were very tired and did not immediately register the fact that there was only one, rather uncomfortable, desk-type chair. So, in between outings when we were both there and wanted to relax, read, make phone calls etc, one of us had to sit or lie on the bed. The room and bathroom were clean, the beds comfortable but the lighting was not ideal. The (ceiling spot)lights managed to cast shadows in a way that made it very hard to read in/on either bed. We did not complain because we were really not in the room that much during the day but when we mentioned the problems the night before we left, when we were requesting a late check- out (which we obtained), the staff tried to be helpful and offered us free breakfast next morning, which were unable to accept because we were meeting a friend elsewhere. Breakfast at the hotel is overpriced and my one phone call from the room (I couldn't reach the (UK) number on my cell ph), was outrageously expensive, but I gather these matters are not unique to this hotel.
