Night away
The hotel itself is beautiful, the bar, bistro and common areas are really well keep and beautifully decorated and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. However we were disappointed with our room. It was very small and a little cramped. My husband and I are both fairly slim but found it very difficult to get in and out of the shower/ bath. The glass door could only open a little before hitting off the sink. There was a lot of noise from some sort of machine outside our window and a lot of loud talking and glass bottles being thrown into bins both at night and in the morning. We assume our room was over the service area yard. There was no air vent in the bathroom either. We were disappointed overall with the room as we opted to pay a little more to stay here rather than other hotels that we are familiar with.
