Great location, lovely room, historic and interesting building, great rain shower, comfy bed. Mr Ciprian our concierge was gracious and helpful, Sardor the bellhop was attentive and always had a smile in spite of being kept very busy by many guests needing help. I’d have liked a folder in the room with information about the facilities, and housekeeping didn’t show up until after 4 (perhaps with Mr Ciprian’s encouragement?) by which time I’d straightened up the room and washed the teacups myself, but we were generally quite satisfied with our stay. I’ll add that we’d booked online at the Barbican Rooms (which are across the street from the Brewery), and I was disappointed that we couldn’t book at the Brewery, but when we checked in we were pleasantly surprised to be given a room at the Brewery. Seemed to be a drunken wedding party at the Rooms across the way but with double windows shut it was quite quiet. I would be delighted to be able to return to this charming hotel.

Extremely helpful and kind staff. Nice size room and quite clean. There are 2 sites belong to the same hotel on the same road just across the street and you need to check in at the main building before going to the room, but that wasn't a problem.
