We chose the hotel because of it's ideal location. Once arrived we parked the car and found many things to see and do within walking distance.
The hotel decoration is "old world" and could do with a makeover. It does have some interesting period feature which are very much in keeping with it's history.
The beds are very comfortable with good quality linen. Our room was cold when we arrived but a member of staff soon resolved the temperature control issue.
We arrived early and our room was not ready. We were offered a free up grade for a room that we ready, very nice.
All of the hotel staff were very helpful. They gave a level of service that has been forgotten in many hotels and restaurants.
An overall pleasant experience.
