3/5

The location is ideal, staff friendly, room clean & comfortable bed. The bathroom lighting is very poor. The television appeared to be coming off the hinges. The safe was broken into prior to our arrival, so couldn’t use.

5/5 Excellent

Excellent staff, lovely breakfast! Hotel is very nice and in good position. Bar seemed to close early... I think it was 10.30 (but plenty nearby...)

Misrepresentation

Room was too small to accommodate a couple. They moved us to a room with 2 twins that was much better. You need to clarify European accommodations and size relative to USA ...I am always having to upgrade though they did not charge us
