Although the hotel flies the Best Western flag, it is family run and the vibe is personal rather than corporate. We did, however, get a good deal for 4 nights' b&b through the Best Western website. The hotel is a traditional building, so the public rooms have a spacious feel and are very relaxing. Our room and bathrom were also of good size. Service was very pleasant, although the bar isn't staffed all the time and on one occasion we had to go looking for someone to serve us - not something that bothered us, but it might irk some people.
The one dinner we had in the hotel was fine, but there is a cluster of restaurants at the bottom of the hill if you want to step out. It's not far to get to them, but it is a steepish climb to get back to the hotel if you're on foot.
All in all we really liked this place and will return if we can find an excuse.
