This review is late as we stayed last year end of August 2011. We had a standard double room for 7 days. The hotel is very nice and cannot rave enough about the roof top bar as it is superb with a small pool (plunge pool). However we asked to be moved twice from two different rooms! The reason being the ceiling would not stop creaking. This probably sounds strange but the building is old and the heat must have been making it creek, but i just could not sleep, we got moved from our first room only to have the exact same problem. we asked to be moved again and i could see the man who was on reception this time was not really amused as he had guests due to be booked in that night but I'm sorry i just couldn't have stayed in the room with another night like that...so reluctantly he moved us and the room was much better. I would return because of the location and roof top bar, oh and basement swimming pool. Also breakfast very good too!!! but i think i would ask to view our room before hand as the problem really was annoying for sleeping..
