I stayed at this hotel for a week with a friend last January and would describe it as quirky. I was however extremely happy with my room (30) which was in the annexe and was very big with a sofa, writing desk, two beds, bathroom and small ante room; however my friend had several problems with her room (27) which was much smaller and had a leaking bidet, and when she arrived the TV and telephone were not working. She reported this to reception and these were fixed the same day; she was also offered another room if she wished, but she declined, as it would mean moving into the main part of the hotel which she preferred not to do.

The staff were friendly and helpful and always willing to oblige and to sort out any problems.

The breakfasts were basic, consisting of either boiled or scrambled egg, fruit salad and bread rolls. There was also cheese, cold meats and salad plus coffee and watery fruit juice which we tried only once.

There was a safe in reception which we were able to use for our valuables.

One drawback is the long upward trawl to the hotel from the centre of town, which did not bother us – particularly my friend who is fitter than I am – but it could be a problem for the elderly or for those with young children.

This hotel could be absolutely fabulous if given a facelift – a bit of redecoration and new carpets would really improve it. Having said that, I really enjoyed my stay there and my room was one of the biggest I have ever stayed in in an hotel.
