A reasonably nice hotel but not outstanding. It feels a little old fashioned in some ways but it’s comfortable. The building itself is beautiful with lots of features but it is reliant on one old lift which isn’t all that reliable. With that in mind, you may have to be prepared to use your legs and walk and and down stairs. The staff were friendly enough. Overall, I would go back again.

First: Great location, a beautiful old building from the 1900's. Staff very friendly. We checked in rather late (our flight was delayed), were shown a room we didn't like and the night porter found a better one. We agreed on a lower rate for the bigger room, which he did promise. In the morning we noticed the following: The room, despite generous in size and having great views, felt dated. Furniture were chipped, some upholstery had spots, the door of the fridge cabinet was sagging. The shower has no door, so we were mopping the bathroom floor after each shower. We complained with the manager, a very friendly woman. She promised a bottle of champagne (never happened) and someone to look at the spots on the upholstery and at the sagging door - no feed back there either. We got the breakfast for free - as asked for. Later during our stay: Used water bottles from the fridge were not replaced, turn-down (we asked to come back in half an hour) did not happen. Very sad, that such a lovely hotel is badly run. Do the owners know? We should have stayed in the Grand Hotel, but chose this one because of the images on their web site. Not again.
