The rooms were very spacious and beautiful, tastefully and decorated in keeping with the building. Very comfortable beds, epic shower and bathroom. Double glazing and location and heavy velvet curtains cut road noise down to a muffled swish and sleeping was not an issue. We will certainly stay again.

The decor was tasteful with a touch of luxury. Very clean and comfortable. The only downside was the inefficient fan heater

Thank you Lesley. The hearter might be not as efficient as air-conditioning, all the beds are also equipped by electrical blanket to make sure our guests stay comfortablly.

The place is old and cold and the entrance to the room was pokey and in behind the reception area. There was no TV although the reception person did say they could get another room with one if I wanted but I didnt have much time to check in so just took it. The room was very on a street corner and was very noisy from around 5:30am with the street crossing noise very loud every time someone wanted to cross the road. Bed was comfortable and good quality curtains etc but place was very cold in the morning.

Really appreciate your feedback. We apologize for not reminding you to turn on the electrical blanket or heater as that night was cold, and reminding you to close the double glarzing window , which can well stop the possible noise from the main road. The room is pretty big at about 25 square meters, not sure why you felt it pokey. thanks again.

The service we received both before and upon arrival was amazing. Our room was spacious, clean and very comfortable. Will definitely be staying again!
