We stayed here one night while with a tour group. Many in our group agreed it was the least desirable of the 9 properties we stayed in. The room and bathroom were clean and a decent size. The staff seemed to be willing to accommodate us. We had a very nice tub in the bathroom. However-- we were on the first floor facing the motorway, and, as others have noted, there was a lot of traffic noise. Even worse, a strong outside light continued to shine above our curtains all night. There was no way to shut it out. Our bed was very uncomfortable with the mattress feeling like it was stuffed with straw. Not a good night's sleep at all! In the morning we discovered that the shower in the room above ours had somehow leaked/cascaded into our bathroom and had soaked our items that were on a high shelf not directly near the shower. When we checked more closely, we could see signs that this had probably happened before. When my husband reported this to reception, she didn't seem at all surprised. As for the restaurant, breakfast was average, nothing outstanding. Our dinner was a mixed bag. The tortillini was quite good. The starter fishcakes were not. The rest was just average. So, a mediocre experience all around with a poor night's sleep.
