    COLD showers

    the location it was right in the middle of nearly everything we went to go and see. It was also right next to the train station which is how we arrived.

    the cold shower on Saturday and Sunday that was not fun. If you are going to charge premium price than it better be a premium hotel. It certainly not a 4 star hotel given the maintenance of their equipment. They need to replace the boiler, I heard it was not the first time they only had cold showers

    Using the Vermillion lounge in the evening for a quiet drink was very pleasant. The Scottish chap with very short hair who attends the door in reception is a great asset to the hotel. We came accross him on several occasions he was always helpful, pleasant, professional and friendly, give him a large pay rise!!!!

    We had some difficulty getting drinks in the Vermillion lounge. I dialed the number on the card as suggested but no answer. The chap from Chile who is studying for a Master in economic development sorted us out in the end, another significant asset for you hotel I hope you look after him
