We arrived and they didn’t have a room for us even after I had called the day prior to check/confirm my booking. They put us up in another hotel which was fine but the extra hour we had to stay up to sort this out wasn’t a great start to my wife’s birthday weekend away. We got a free breakfast but really a full night reimbursement or credit for another weekend was more appropriate

The staff helpful and lovely, the mini bar was little over priced (the usual) plus the room was little cramped but over all very clean, nice little hotel i'd stay there again.

Lovely, helpful check-in/check-out. Centrally located in the city. Great bed - slept so well! The only downside to the room was the bathroom is a little dated.
