In some respects this is a 4-star hotel. Spotlessly clean, spacious public areas, reasonable buffet breakfast, courteous staff. The room had a good view. However, there are a couple of things with which I was less pleased. Firstly, the room design is very odd. Immediately behind the bed is a wall, behind which are the toilet and shower. The toilet is separated from the room only by a hanging translucent glass panel, so a user of the toilet is only 3 feet from someone in the bed, and the sound of bodily functions is embarrassingly clear. Because of the arrangement, there are no bed-side tables, so a shelf is fixed to the wall above the bed. This prevents leaning back whilst sitting up in bed. Higher again above the bed is a protruding bulkhead with a sharp edge and corners. We ate in the hotel restaurant on the evening of 21 September, because we were too tired to take the 5-10 minute walk down the hill to the town centre. We were the only couple in the restaurant, and the meal was mediocre but not cheap. Charge for wifi in the room is disappointing. So, you may like this hotel very much, as so many of the reviewers do, or not.
