Fabulous 8,6 From 92 reviews

Very good 8,0
All good except for the shower that we could not stop dripping.
Philip, gb2 night trip
Very good 8,0
Nice place but a little tired around the edges
The Townhouse is a cute hotel with an innovative and different feel to it. The staff are friendly and helpful but parts of the hotel are a little tired and in need of updating and tidying. It was also unfortunate that 6-7 bags of laundry were left at the bottom of the staircase for all to see. The breakfast was nice although a little overpriced at £15 for coffee, juice, cereal and something cooked.

Exceptional 10,0
Great hotel conveniently located close to center
FEZAN, gb2 night trip
Exceptional 10,0
The hotel is very unique with highly designed rooms that are in excellent conditions. The level of comfort is outstanding for this price range and the staff were enthusiastic and had a 'can-do' attitude that was very welcome. It is also well situated: not directly in the centre to have a bit of piece but just a 5-10min from all the sights.

Does boutique mean small?
Very expensive room, very small room and very poor value.
