Poor 2.0
Neither cheap nor good
It's a bit of a sad place in need of some TLC. Everything about the decor, bed, furnishings, bedding, etc, screams cheap. It's such a shame; it's in a fantastic location and in a lovely building. I wonder how many return visitors they get...

Very good 8.0
Nice find
Good location for what we wanted. Strange room set-up due to bathroom being an addition to room. Slightly odd that room wasn't cleaned during our stay. That said, quiet, reasonably priced & just what we wanted for the weekend.

Good 6.0
Not for Business Travellers
The hotel is in a convenient position and the staff member I met was pleasant and helpful but the hotel is not really suited for a business trip. The restaurant, which I did not use, is Persian but does not provide breakfast. The 'continental breakfast' comes in a tray left outside your room. If I was on holiday it wouldn't bother me I would just go up the road and buy a cooked one.
