6/10 Good

Overnight stay
Staff friendly and welcoming. Room was small and quite grubby, the bathroom drains smelled. Work was being carried out in the floor we were on and was noisy and the floor smelled damp. We asked to move room and we’re accommodated without question. Our second room was still small but much cleaner although the bathroom was in need of a ‘grout’ makeover ! Breakfast was good although coffee machine was not working properly and did not get fixed. Probably would not stay here again , Shame as staff were very friendly and accommodating.

2/10 Poor

Room from hell
From 05:30 each morning we could not sleep because of strong smell of Bacon coming from the air conditioning unit. Also loud noise from the pipes whenever the room above flushed the toilet. For £200 per night hotel we expected a much better quality

A very comfortable stay
Our stay was very comfortable, stuff lovely and very helpful. Room and the bathroom was nice and clean. It would have been good to have a better variety for the continental type of breakfast, eg fresh tomatoes, cucumbers, lettuce or fresh peppers. Overall, a very pleasant stay

Good Hotel in Old Town

6/10 Good

The staff at the desk were very helpful! Always pleasant, always willing to assist. Room service was slow and inconsistent - often not until mid-afternoon, often without taking away dirty towels…. No concierge. Limited dining - usually only the bar, and one night that was closed.
