A highly recommendable budget hotel close to the city centre, with almost all the major attractions within walking distance. The rooms are spacious and the staff is friendly and helpful, the breakfast buffet is perhaps a little spartan (no yoghurt) but still quite sufficient. My wife and I got a room on the ground floor facing the back yard, and since it was in the middle of the summer we were initially a little perturbed by the fact that there weren't any windows we could open to let the cool air in - only a glass door. This didn't prove a problem though, we never saw anyone moving about in the yard so it felt safe enough to keep the door open when we were in the room. Also, we've since understood that the building is listed as historic property which means that the proprietors of the hotel aren't allowed to make any alterations, so we don't hold the lack of windows against them! The only minus is that the staff can be a bit noisy when cleaning the hallways in the morning which can be a little annoying if you need to sleep in, but this is a minor flaw.
By and large, we strongly recommend this hotel and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again!
