    Breakfast was good. Downstairs was nice.

    The rooms were old and not well maintained. The shower flooded the bathroom. Rooms were small.

    Excessive prices and unfriendly bar staff

    Great location

    £18 for a vodka and coke and £9 per pint. What’s more all bills have a 12.5% discretionary service charge which isn’t brought to your attention. Bar staff also have poor English and are unhelpful and rude.

    Excellent location, superb room and staff were exceptionally polite and accomodating. In fact the staff really stood out among a lot of hotels I have been at. Breakfast was also great.

    The Guiness tap was out at the bar.
