The photos and booking through Opodo appeared to give enough assurances to warrant a booking but this was a big mistake. My wife and I are well over 70 so being allocated a third floor room (no lifts) was not a good start. We can usually manage our luggage but many narrow staircases.to negotiate was offputting. We were offered help by the mostly young staff during our one-night stay to be fair but the accommodation did not suit us and we shall not be returning.
The double room was far too Spartan; the bed not big enough, the space not good enough, the bathroom was a joke - far too small with a less than private folding door. The famous sausages at breakfast were far from that and access to the parking was a challenge too far at the end of a journey.
The overall impression is of a guest house trying to be a hotel but failing in most respects. Only one person gave me the impression he knew what he was doing. Such a disappointment.
