Reception areas are very spacious and lovely, staff are excellent, very welcoming. Has on site parking and for motorbikes this was free, which was a welcome bonus. Just outside the town so no need to take the bikes through the narrow cobbled streets either!
Easy walk into town with shops and bars to entertain you all the way.
Ladies who did the breakfast shift worked really hard to keep tables clean and food replenished and always with a smile. Breakfast was what you would expect and had a good choice. The breakfast room is too hot and rather small if everyone decides to turn up at the same time! However, there is an overflow breakfast area that is cooler and a little quieter available just across from the breakfast room.
Pool area is lovely, yes the pool looks green rather than the usual blue but it's clean and not too cold. Towels are provided along with loungers and chairs. It does have a small changing area, showers and toilet. Beware the showers though they are boiling hot!
We had hair and shower gel provided from a dispenser on the wall in the bath/ shower and the same for hand wash at the sink. Perfectly adequate.
WFI worked well and the code/password is in the information folder in the room, which is also in English.
We stayed for three nights and wished it could have been longer, we will definitely go back.
The only negative would be how hot the hotel is, all areas have fans including our room but my hubby still struggled with the heat. The weather was warm but not hot when we were there so we put it down to the heating from the pool area. It wouldn't stop us going back there though.
