Fabulous 8.6 From 89 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Great hotel conveniently located close to center
FEZAN, gb2 night trip
Exceptional 10.0
The hotel is very unique with highly designed rooms that are in excellent conditions. The level of comfort is outstanding for this price range and the staff were enthusiastic and had a 'can-do' attitude that was very welcome. It is also well situated: not directly in the centre to have a bit of piece but just a 5-10min from all the sights.

Fair 4.0
Does boutique mean small?
Very expensive room, very small room and very poor value.
Charles, gb2 night trip
Very good 8.0
Needs a little tlc to bring it back to what the owners probably intended. Unlike modern hotels period furniture (real or faux) has more edges which are prone to catching and chipping with constant use. The windows were in tire need of a clean but I can appreciate why - they looked as though they might fall into the street if touched. I understand however that these are due to be replaced.

Loved it
The town house is really quirky and you can tell they’ve spent a lot of time paying attention to detail. Although in a central location our stay was still quiet and relaxing with friendly staff.
