    The room was small and worn in places. No plug in bath so couldn't have a soak. Initially asked for a quiet room - got allocated one by the elevator shaft - not quiet..... Staff were helpful. Breakfast was good.

    Can't recall for sure, but I'm sure they did. Given the classy nature of the place, I think I'd remember if they didn't.
