The view from the bedroom was beautiful. Car parking and the flowers and chocolates that were left in the room were a nice gesture

Nice hotel, refurbished at 2017 with lovely staff. Just one small downside was as bathroom wasn’t clean up to standard. Be aware as there is no coffee or tea facilities in the room and you will need to go every single time down to reception, where you find two cofffee machines ready to serve you. We stay over NYE and have couple of requests (like ice bucket, extra pillows, etc) and nothing was problem. Literally, in meantime when I make two coffees, and take my way back to room, pillows was on the way too and meet me at the lift :)
