Thank-you for staying, we do appreciate your feedback and regret that the stay didn't meet some of your expectations. Unfortunately some things are outside our control, however we will investigate the room that you were in to see where improvements can be made. Regards

Very unique inside and lovely layout in the rooms. The venetian blinds offer not alot of darkness at night when overlooking the pub / street lights. Needs curtains as I felt I had a dim light on all night. The door separating you from other rooms (internal door) is not very insulated as my neighbours woke at 5am I could everything they were saying. The walls are insulated but doesnt really help as the the door offers no privacy. Terrible sleep overall but I have to say it is a beautiful hotel at same time. Just needs insulation on those internal doors and curtains over venetian's as an option.

Dear Peta Ann, Thank-you for staying with us and sharing your thoughts, we value your feedback. Indeed some of the areas you've touched on are areas we'll be making improvements in later this year as we continue aspects of our soft refurbishment, so it's pleasing to know these matter to guests like you. We do hope to welcome you back at a future time. With regards
