The area in where the hotel is is lovely. There are lots of quaint little shops and restaurants and its close enough to the main square, about a 10/15 minute walk. The hotel has potential it’s just needs upgrading and a freshen up. The stairs to get to the rooms are really steep so not advised for anyone that would have difficulties with that.
The staff however let down the hotel. On arrival we were met by a lady in the restaurant (also hotel reception) who asked if we would like to check in, to which we said yes, we were then told, abruptly that we couldn’t until 3pm but we could leave our bags. She showed us to the ‘secure’ luggage area, which was a shelf to the side of the restaurant with a rope from side to side which the bags were to be padlocked onto. We were told to remove all valuables before leaving. The self was situated on the way to the restaurant toilets, so anyone using the bathroom could easily access the bags.
Check in was very unorganised. We had to sit in the busy restaurant and wait for the staff to become available to check us in and show us to our room.
On the 2nd night, I was getting changed when the room door opened. One of the staff was showing guests to their room, got mixed up and entered our room to my horror. He apologised and hurried away. We returned to the hotel later that evening to find our key no longer working. Luckily we managed to catch the restaurant before it closed. Any later, we could have been locked out all night.
