This small boutique hotel is in a heritage building so the guest rooms are smaller but the warm welcome and service makes the whole place amazing. We arrived as a group of 12 to stay and yet the check in was fast and efficient and everyone felt at home. The breakfast was delicious, a small buffet but then you ordered a hot breakfast off a menu. The food was well cooked and well presented and service was fast. The complimentery drinks cabinet in the lounge was a lovely touch and made us feel even more welcome and made a nice meeting place. It is set in the main area with restaurants and bars in the street. There was some noise as my bathroom window overlooked the street but it was a Saturday night but I still slept well. The trade off is that you are right where you need to be

Awesome Breakfast Perfect scrambled eggs and smoked salmon...They offer a complementary drink from their Honesty Bar...a nice touch. Looking forward to my next stay!
