Amazing hotel, location and facilities excellent. Staff friendly, room very comfortable indeed.
Room was excellent although a little cold.
Well finished modern rooms in a historic central location.
Perfect city centre location, luxurious and spacious room. Boutique hotel which has been very clearly converted from an old prison but maintaining many historic features. Enjoyable stay. Will return in future.
