Excellet location, in the heart of betws!. First night we had a pleasant clean and tidy double room unfortunately, the bed was to soft, I had to sleep on the floor and my wife woke up with extremely stiff neck and back. Spoke to reception who kindly allowed us to check out a twin and family room, like goldie locks we headed to the twin, one bed was to soft the other would have been fine, upon entering the family room we were a little taken back by the out dated scruffy decor, however the bed was better, so we settled for the 2nd night of our stay. The side table was masticked to the wall with the kettle, and to boil the kettle you had to put it on the floor on the opposite side of the room! Where the only plug socket was available, also made getting ready to go out also as the mirror was also the opposite side of the room to the socket. We had dinner in the a joining indian resturant (not part of the hotel) where we had some lovely dishes.. on going to bed that night we found to our dismay that the quilt fitted the bed exactly and when you pulled it up round your neck you feet were fully exposed. We had to take a single quilt off the bunk beds to cover our feet!! Hasten to say we did not stay the third night that we had paid for and preffered to get home to our own bed 420 kilometer away.
The breakfast unfortunetly was also poor and not worth the price.. this was a groupon I would not be sharing. On departure (early) the reception did not charge us the weekend supplement due to the problems we had experienced although not the full cost of the 3rd night.
Overall with such a great location in the heart of betws the hotel rooms need some serious tlc if just a luck of paint and new mattresses...
