Great hotel but noisy location
Great staff and super decor and vibe. However, no sleep as room on first floor overlooking very busy and noisy road.

Very good 8.0
Great central stay
We thought the hotel was lovely - just like the pictures and breakfast at Foundation and dinner at the Peruvian restaurant were fantastic! It was great to be able to book extras before the stay, but we were disappointed to find that, having booked yoga mats and a yoga lesson, that it wasn’t until we arrived that we were told the yoga session was cancelled. We were told yoga mats had been put in our room - they hadn’t. All in all would stay again, but communication could be improved.

Perfect place to stay.
Brilliant hotel with wonderful rooms and style. The only one fault was that the rooms can be a bit warm and hard to cool down.
Alex, gb1 night trip
Good 6.0
Staff wonderful but stay was a huge disappointment
Unfortunately alot of things added up to a negative stay. Very disappointing. Not a relaxing stay which was the whole point for my stay. As a care worker it was my first break in a long time. The building is beautiful and the décor downstairs is stunning. Clean and welcoming. I was left to navigate the halls trying to find my room which is no easy feat when lugging a suitcase and my work equipment around. I had to drag my bag up four flights of stairs. I couldn't leave my bag to find help so had to struggle. I didn't eat at the hotel opting to use the facilities included in the room. Be aware that the doors are heavy and always shut loudly. No matter what you do to prevent it. I wasted almost £30 of food as the 'smart' smegg hob malfunctioned. Thus ruining my meals and having to throw alot away. Only one window would open and the other was painted over. I asked for a fan and waited almost two hours. No one came so I went to ask myself. Another helpful worker found me a Dyson fan that he himself was using on reception. One staff member was incredibly helpful. She moved me to another room on the same floor and couldn't apologise enough after trying to help me figure out what was wrong. After turning the fuse off it still wouldn't fix. Making the room unsafe hence the room swap. On first glance the room was roomy and the little thoughtful welcome touches were a wonderful touch. Lots more to say!

Loved the location and decor. Unfortunately the hotel doesn't have any air conditioning - room was very stuffy. Not able to open any windows.

Shame about the cleanliness...
The WC was dirty. There was sick on it and pretty dry (from days). Dishes, glasses and cutlery also dirty.
