The hotel is a very old building with no air conditioning. Unfortunately the room I got was facing the high street that was really noisy making it unpleasant as I had to open the windows do to the heat. The stuff very kindly offered that I could switch rooms but the only other available one was right right above the kitchen and the kitchen fan was just as bad. Personally, not a great value for money. Looks are not everything after all.

The staff were excellent, very attentive and looked after us very well. The room was comfortable and nicely decorated. Only downside was the stairs as we both have creaky knees. Would go back again but book a room on a lower floor.
