Quite a nice hotel. rooms are spacious and reasonably modern. BUT.....the windows even on the fourth floor open all the way out and there is no way of just cracking them open. An accident waiting to happen if you have young children. Noise from both inside and outside the hotel carries into the bedrooms. breakfast was acceptable but it is strange that you are not given a pot of tea or coffee..instead the busy waitresses serve it which results in long delays between refills and tea which is a little cold. Also no marmalade available.
Was somewhat shocked by the grammatical howler on a public notice about attire on the restaurant door.!!!
Staff generally helpful and friendly though when checking out I was not asked if everthing was satisfactory. Thing I would clasify this as "budget" so dear enough for that at 118 euro for 2 for bed and breakfast.
