We actually enjoyed our stay here until I noticed an extra charge on my credit card from this hotel a few weeks after our stay. The hotel didn’t send me a bill until I reached out to Expedia, and then in their bill they claimed we took things from the minibar, including wine, which we don’t drink. We brought our own food and didn’t take any of their ridiculous, overpriced minibar garbage. They’re a bunch of scammers and I don’t recommend staying here. Maybe if you take pictures of everything before and after you leave then it might be okay. Their gym also seemed to be closed every time we checked. 0 stars.

The public areas are great, while the rooms are small and just "adequate". The record players, while it looked good as a design feature, are quite unnecessary in such a small dark space with limited flat surfaces.

Modern hotel in a great location. Walkable to the bus/train station. Short walk to the square and all the fun stuff around it. Got there well before checkin time and left our bags with them - they just kept them in an open area to the left of the front desk that was accessible to anyone so that was nerve wracking in its lack of security. Room was modern with all the amenities. King size bed, heated towel rack in bathroom, length of power outliers, big modern tv, good size modern bath. Very little table top space for your stuff and small purses or bags - while the record player stuff is cool it takes up any possible space you could use for your belongings. 2 people with bags - we were doing a bit of a dance walking around each other and our stuff on the floor as it was close quarters. Comfortable sleep though

Generally nice. Few issues.
Pros. Very good location. Incredibly friendly staff. Both restaurants were excellent. Very inviting lobby. Rooms clean and a nice shower. Cons. Leisure facilities and pool not yet open. Hotel was originally advertised with a pool. When I messaged the hotel I was told facilities would be open end of August. They are no where near complete. Rooms are very small. There is no storage in the room. It rained heavily when we were out, so shoes, socks etc were all very wet, there is no draws, cupboards to put anything in. Rooms are nice, but very small with limited stuff you need and a fair bit of stuff you don’t need. Overall a nice, very well staffed hotel with great options for food in a nice location. Just a few small issuers with the room.

Hotel is not made for more than a night or two. Swimming pool not finished yet. Gorgeous restaurant but slow service. Not all staff up to speed yet. Very clean.
