Stayed here for 3 nights over Christmas and even had our Christmas lunch here. The hotel is right in the heart of town and opposite the old abbey and castle which provides a nice view.
The hotel room was very modern and nicely renovated and all of the staff at the hotel were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was very good as was the Christmas lunch. Dinner was a bit hit and miss on Boxing day but it was still ok.
Highly recommended hotel. The only tip is to bring earplugs as the sound of churchbells ringing (every 15 minutes) at the top of the hill may wake you up although I only heard it every now and again and it wasn't enough to bother me. The only other small issue was that our room had a door which connected to the other room so we could hear guests in the other room including the man snoring but thankfully it wasn't too loud.
