Great position for the BIC 😀
Lovely hotel. Friendly staff . Not enough tables for breakfast .... we had to eat in the bar and people had to wait a long time to be seated .

Lovely place to stay!
We booked last minute (on the day of travel). The whole experience from arrival to checking out was excellent. Staff professional, helpful and friendly. Our room and communal areas were spotlessly clean. Decor lovely. Food was excellent and very good value. Loved the plaques detailing the history of the building. And its within 5 minute walk to The Pavilion and opposite the BIC. Want to come back to try the Cocktail Bar and sit outside on their lovely Terrace (once the sun reappears!)

Fair 4,0
The hotel is fine and well placed in the town. My stay was not great because they chose to play live music through the night while I was trying to get 2 young children to sleep on the level above. The breakfast service was also poor. I won’t be going back.

Poor 2,0
Worst experience in a hotel ever.
The place is dirty, old , loud and the beds are with really bad mattresses. Pillows were really bad, the breaks on the bed base werent working so we had to slide all night. Smelled like some really cheap and heavy parfum. Also the bethroom filled with water very quick and there was no drain.. Worst experience in a hotel ever.
