Stayed here for three nights in March. The room itself was very good, with a king-sized bed in the main room, and two singles in a back bedroom (which we did not have to use). The room was well-equipped and modern. What spoilt it for us was the fact that the room was entered by a large french window at the front. There was a double (imovable) seat to one side of the window, which was used by our neighbours - which meant that when we went in we had to literally reach over them to open the window, and when we were in our room, we felt we were constantly overlooked by them. Unfortunately, it was not possible to move the seat further along, as it was screwed to the floor. We also noticed a rather unpleasant smell in the room, for which we could not find the source, and on the first night we had a small invasion of ants which we managed to contain. The hotel in in a good position, as others have noted, but we would have preferred a room on the upper floor which might have provided a greater degree of privacy.
