Rooms and service were fine however there was no hot water in the morning so cold shower to start the NY. The hotel also did not tell us when booking that a band would be playing music into the early hours of the morning.

The history and architecture of the building is amazing. My Suite was massive. The room was warm and the beds were very confortable. The extra touch of an espresso machine and full size fridge was awesome. Well done
