Wonderfully styled to blend the modern with a bygone era. Lovely courtyard and a foyer with an open fire. Front reception staff are fantastic where I received a warm welcome and help during my stay. My Classic King room was spacious with great decor and bathroom. The hotel is conveniently located and has a great gym and nice streets for a walk. They do a great French Martini!
