We had a wonderful stay in the RSC, such a wonderful relaxing atmosphere, lovely spacious bedroom, comfortable bed, and large bathroom. The reception staff did a good job looking after us (considering the circumstances) very friendly and with precautions they had in place, we felt safe. We plan to return as we had such a lovely time.
