Very Good8.0
Nice little boutique hotel.
Stayed in the rouge room. Was fine but would stay in a different room if we went again. The carpet was wet ( possibly from a previous guest spilling something but not great. No robes as advertised. Shower never got hot. The bed was lovely and comfy though. The room isn’t tiny. Fantastic staff Very friendly Wouldn’t pay that kind of money for the rouge room though.

Fantastic. Hotel was amazing. Staff were so friendly and helpful. Breakfast was superb. Quiet surroundings but close enough to centre of town. Should be 5 star not 4.
