    Breakfast was good. Downstairs was nice.

    The rooms were old and not well maintained. The shower flooded the bathroom. Rooms were small.

    Excessive prices and unfriendly bar staff

    Great location

    £18 for a vodka and coke and £9 per pint. What’s more all bills have a 12.5% discretionary service charge which isn’t brought to your attention. Bar staff also have poor English and are unhelpful and rude.
