Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Lovely hotel - let down by noise and breakfast
Check in was easy and quick. The hotel style was great and the room was very clean, so in this regard we really enjoyed the stay, however this was unfortunately let down on two parts. The hotel is on the main square and round the corner from quite a few pubs and bars, we were in a room on the street side of the hotel and there was people walking around in the street outside, screaming and shouting until 3:30am - which is a shame as it affected our view on our stay, but is out of the hotel’s control and may not be a regular occurrence. Breakfast was okay but not quite as expected - a bowl of bananas and oranges, bread, miniature boxes of cereal, a jug of orange juice and tea/coffee. Initially there were no hotel staff around and we had to go and find someone to ask for bread and butter.

ot a good stay
Room had no power and the roof was leaking when I arrived, breakfast was in a bag which was not good, the steak I had in the restaurant was tough and I could not eat it. The staff and position of the hotel is perfect, just need a some work doing to it.

2/5 Poor

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service
So disappointed there was not a cooked breakfast, that is what we had and enjoyed here before. We should have been told at point of booking. The grab bag they have given us is shameful!!
