One night stay recently as we were seeing friends who could not put us up.
Had one of the rooms with a 4-poster bed, which was OK, if a bit soft for our liking. The room was also above the bar, so was a bit noisy when we returned. Strange to have used this room when they were not full and there were probably quieter rooms available. Roll-top bath in the bathroom, with a shower attached. I found it difficult to get in and out of, and claustrophobic with the shower curtain around me. The lighting in the bedroom was poor, making it difficult to read. I tried to connect to their wi-fi, but without success. Nothing came up asking me to create an account with Cloud.
We didn't eat in the hotel as we were seeing friends for dinner, so can't comment on the food, but the breakfast was ok.
