Loved our stay, was relaxed, beautifully decorated room and hotel itself. Staff were really nice. Cocktails whilst playing table tennis was the highlight. Didn't eat here in the evening only because we had a big lunch. Breakfast was really good though. Really nice chilled stay, we will be back!

I stayed in this hotel because I was on an art course in the same street so for convenience it could not be faulted. My first impressions were mixed as the outside is on the shabby side of shabby chic. My room was a good size for one but other than a hanging rail storage space is limited so with...

My wife booked a night here for a surprise birthday present for me in January and I've been meaning to write a review. We both loved it lovely friendly staff, cosy, funky stylish rooms, with everything you could want. Comfortable beds, tasty different mini bar drinks and snacks and my wife loved the toiletries which smelled wonderful. Great happy hour...

A really stylish hotel that serves a great breakfast and has a top notch restaurant attached. The staff were incredibly friendly too. Looking forward to trying out one of their other hotels as soon as possible.

This is the best hotel I've ever stayed in. The rooms are wonderful, each one individually decorated and furnished with interesting stuff. It's brilliantly, artistically done. If I tried to do something similar it would look a complete mess, but whoever is responsible for the decorations and furnishings has such an artistic eye that it all works perfectly, with recovered...

I read the reviews for this hotel and I thought it would be a nice treat for the start of our holiday to book a room for one night. Despite asking for a quiet room, we were allocated room 1. We had a constant stream of noise from 8pm until 1am; the music from the restaurant below, the music and...
