A convenient location from me but it's not a casual stroll into town due to the hills. Only issue is no breakfast, but there are plenty of cafes on the main street. OK, if you have to work from the room for a couple of days.

I use the hotel a lot, but WiFi is poor and the shower head kept falling down in Champagne Room

A beautiful hotel
The hotel is beautiful, I can't fault that one bit, nor the owner who was extremely helpful. Unfortunately the problem was that we couldnt open the window and the weather was hot and therefore the room was uncomfortable. There was a fan in the cupboard but that just stirred up the heat. I'm not sure if opening the window would have helped either as my husband was also having trouble sleeping due to the traffic. We were on the main Morningside road and for that reason it was busy. I would wholly recommend
