8/10 Very good

Good stay for business
Very nice pub. Rooms are at the top of the building with a number of stairs (no lift) Beautiful rooms, very comfy but advise you leave the heating on in the day if your staying in the winter months as they get very cold! Staff were great. Alex (Manager) offered to help with bags up the stairs We eat in the restaurant, food was very good! Wine list is extensive and again Alex knew his stuff there also! Seemed to be confusion around breakfast as the staff in the morning didn't know we hadn't paid on check-in so had to run around to sort that, but wasn't an issue in the end. But the Chef was a no-show so we didn't get breakfast

8/10 Very good

Room was tastefully decorated but from a personal point of view it would be good to have a kettle with tea/coffee facilities. I did not need to eat there but the food looked good and plenty of people were ordering. Good atmosphere in the bar and a good selection of beers.

Nos encontramos que no tenia ascensor yteiamos que subir 70 escalones para llegar a las habitaciones. No entraron a limpir las habitaciones y soll habian 5. Preguntamos si podiamos desayunar a las 7:30 y nos dijeron que si. La realidad fue que a las 8:15 la cocina estaba cerrada. La ubicscion nefasta. NO VOLVERIAMOS NI QUE NOS LO REGALARAN.

6/10 Good

Lit 140 et non king size ni queen size !!!
Pub très animé un samedi soir, restaurant a l étage, et juste 5 chambres situées au 4eme etage : a savoir car la montée des escaliers avec de grosses valises peut s avérer fastidieuse. Rien a dire sur la propreté, et la chambre quoique salle de bain (douche) pas très grande avec wc non sépatés... , par contre pour le lit rien a voir avec un king size ou meme queen size!! Simplement un 140!!! Ce qui pourtant avait été annoncé!!! Même si la literie est très bonne , ce point très important pour nous fera que nous ne reviendrons pas...
