The hotel is situated very near the centre and a short walk from the cathedral. Apparently some of our fellow passengers had issues with noise but we didn't experience this. The surrounding streets are interesting to explore with plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from. Watch out for the gypsies outside the cathedral with their 'free' heather.
The room was clean and tidy with comfy beds but no fridge or mini bar to keep stuff cool. The bathroom was spacious compared to many but watch out in the shower as the water really fluctuated between hot and artic cold. I guess it saves water that way as you don't want to linger longer than necessary. There is free wi-fi although the signal is not very strong in many places around the building. The lounge area was comfy but restaurant is cramped, especially with a couple of tours present.
The buffet breakfast was poor and once again the orange juice was watered down and from a machine. The hot drinks were also from machines but they were ok. The variety of food on offer wasn't brilliant nor seemed to be very good quality. The included buffet dinner for our tour was better but I'd recommend eating elsewhere.
However the saving grace to all the above was the bar service which was efficient and friendly. A local gin is offered with tonic and the barman makes quite a show of preparing it. It's also very good to drink and we've come away with a bottle!! Other drinks are of course offered. The hotel would only have scored 2 / 5 had it not been for the excellent barman and his wares.
Fine for an overnight but maybe not brilliant for any longer but be sure to try the gin!
