Very good bed and breakfast rate for winter. Exterior looks like a prison block, however quite pleasant inside. The upgraded executive bedroom with 2 double beds and refurbished room was comfortable with 2 reclining armchairs, tea and coffee and free wifi, iron and ironing board - shoe horn would have been nice, though. Unofrtunately no view and little daylight as Otium spa has been built in a box a few feet from the window. The corridors are cold; the rooms are heating by air and do not have radiators for drying wet things. Otium spa is quite nice but at the end of the day the changing rooms are dirty as they do not seems to be regularly cleaned during the day. The swimming pool is nice, attractive quite warm water but small. Surroundings are a bit chilly. To get to the spa you have to proceed along a virtually unheated corridor with large glass walls - brrr - dash through.
Staff in hotel are of many nationalities, very helpful and pleasant - Health spa - less so. Breakfast bar a bit variable but pretty fair, Restaurant freezing as unheated ( a few electric fires!!) but food not bad (had fried fish and steak) - quite accceptable,
