Very difficult to sleep!!!!
The problem with the hotel is that the door in the room is the cheapest door ever, so all the noise in the hall you will heard. Never see anything like this!!! Also the breakfast is a joke, one kind of cheese for £15.00 It is easy to find better hotel, don’t book this one

Disappointed with our Stay
We picked this hotel because our children were staying in a nearby flat on North Charlotte St. The deluxe King bedroom was not very deluxe in size. The plain blanket laid across the bed had white stains. Our big screen TV with cable never worked though they sent someone on 2 occasions to fix it. The decor was lovely and we are at the restaurant for breakfast on two mornings. The first morning we were asked if we wanted coffee and said yes and after 20 minutes I had to flag down another wait staff person to bring it to us. Otherwise setting in the restaurant was beautiful and food was good. Hotel is cozy and location was great.
