Brilliant place, will stay there...

Liked: Staff were very friendly and welcoming. Everything was tidy and clean, especially the kitchen. Breakfast was lavish, nice croissants and freshly ground coffee, good start to the day. The outdoor space was really nice to sit in the evening. Location is brilliant, only 10 minutes from the city centre.
Disliked: Nothing really, simply a really good place to stay.
