Excellent location within walking distance to all major sightseeing

Ridiculously Comfy Beds
Overall a fantastic stay. The room was quiet cold when I arrived and at the far end of the corridor which seemed unnecessary for a half empty hotel. Dinner was excellent for a solo dinner. Personally I’d of liked a little less sauce as it masked the quality of the meat and fish which were excellent. Breakfast was good, not quiet as good as dinner, grilled tomato hadn’t seen a grill and potato scones were very very dry. The spa was the let down. Firstly couldn’t book in advance as no one answered the phone on the 4 times I called. However I booked in in the morning. Had use of the swimming pool, great temperature but nasty old plaster in the corner. Steam room was very dark sauna not working. Gym instructor man Acting as Receptionist kept forgetting to get my robe and slippers. Which when arrived were too small. Treatment was fantastic, charming lady, did a good job. Concierge were excellent, helpful and efficient. Overall fantastic hotel and service, just let down by a few minor things that should have been spotted for a quiet midweek night in January. However would definitely recommend and return
