We stayed in room 202 and the only issues I have with this spot are nitpicky little things. The location was fantastic (though we only stayed in town to eat at night). They have their own parking- perfect since we rented a car. The room was beautiful, large and spacious, the bed extremely comfortable. The cold tap really is delicious to drink from. The small tiny issues that would NOT prevent me from staying here again: we couldn't find the thermostat (maybe we weren't looking hard enough and we didn't ask the staff either) so my husband was slightly warmer than he'd like. The shower does not have a little rack to put your toiletries on when showering. I had to keep reaching over to the toilet to get my shampoo, etc. The hot water definitely has a sulphurous smell, but I didn't mind that at all. We had no issues with noise either, though we stayed from Easter Sunday to the Tuesday after the town still seemed to have a lot of nightlife going on.
My biggest general tip: rent a car and get the gps nav. It was a fantastic way to get around and miss the crowds which was one of my favourite parts of the trip: communing with nature with no one else around. And even though I had bought a large map, it was super helpful to have both the map and the gps.
A great trip made even better by the wonderful hotel.
