Reviews from visitors...
"The Hotel was good, the staff friendly and helpful, a large decadent building with windows that open, large rooms, clean with all mod cons. No wifi in the rooms but a cable, a cable is no good for an ipad though,wifi in the restaurant. Had trouble with the Wifi, so ended up using my mobile data.
