August 2017
Location brilliant.
September 2017
Several small hotels shared large building. Desiree was all of second floor. 10 steps up to entrance then charming old lift, only held 3 people. Public areas just chairs and settees in corridor. Plug missing from bathroom sink. Complained 1st day and 2nd day, left 3rd day, still no plug. Room was dark as shutters on outside, then double glazing, then really old coloured glass , then shutters. Good thing was it kept out all the noises of busy streets. Close to railway station.

Very near station and well positioned for the main sights. Lovely old style hotel on 2nd floor of old building.
