My wife and I stayed at this hotel for 2 night, late September 2013. We arrived about 30 minutes early and so had to wait until 2pm to check in, which I guess is fair enough but the hotel was no where near full so we did hope to be able to check in a little earlier. However the receptionist was friendly enough and provided us we a map and direction to the town centre. The room itself was at the front of the hotel and was Ok but perhaps could do with a bit of updating but the bed was reasonably comfortable.
My main concern however was that as we were at the front of the hotel the noise from the main road outside was clearly audible even with the windows closed and the curtains drawn. I did consider asking to be moved but having read previous comments from the hotel on Trip Advisor I got the distinct impression that if you booked via an agent (Booking.com in our case) and not directly with the hotel then you got what you were given, a case in point is that the wifi is free for direct bookings but a charge of 5 euros is levied for people who booked through an agent.
On a positive note the breakfast was very good and the location is reasonable, it's just a shame about the inadequate noise insulation from the main road.
