Perfect for foodies
It seems that any guest who likes their food will love this hotel. Whether commenting on breakfast, lunch or dinner, reviews consistently rate the dining experience here highly. The food is expertly cooked and reasonably priced and the service is efficient but unhurried.
Guests rate the standard of the rooms highly, with many commenting on how clean and comfortable they found the accommodation. Most found the rooms spacious and many comment on the good quality beds and reliable Internet service.
Some minor noise
A small number of guests mention that they were able to hear street noise from within their room. That said, this is mentioned so infrequently that you have to assume the problem is so minor that it will only affect the lightest of sleepers.
Lack of a separate bar
Guests occasionally comment on the lack of an obvious bar area. It does seem that this is a place for dining and drinks rather than somewhere to unwind over a drink alone. Guests say there are a few bars nearby so it's not a huge issue.
Air-conditioning would improve rooms
Although guests rate the quality of the rooms highly, air-conditioning (or even a fan) would be welcome during warmer weather. Some guests felt their room was a little too warm.
