We booked a weekend away and stayed at the new opened Schaller Studio.
The reception area is warm and welcoming, especially on a Winter's day. You're greeted by a cafe , reception and several comfortable seating areas. The room was small but well appointed with a good bathroom and comfortable bed. The room's size isn't really suitable for sitting back and relaxing in but I think the idea is to do this in the communal atmosphere of the reception area.
The mini-bar was well stocked with local beer and wine and reasonably priced, as was the cafe downstairs. Every room, and the corridors and other shared areas show pieces of Schaller's art which are available for purchase.
The service throughout the hotel was excellent, welcoming and friendly. The only small downside is a lack of parking. Being in the grounds of the hospital (which is being rebuilt over the road) means that parking is at a premium and the car park in front of the hotel was full when we arrived.
The hotel is within an easy walk to town with plentiful things to do and places to eat. I'd definitely stay here again.
