Having read a few reviews recently, I was a little concerned about the hotel, but it was unnecessary. The hotel is very good, exactly as I expect from a 4*. Some moans have been the lack of English TV - well, if this bothers you, I can recommend Cornwall! Thin pool teowels - OMG - they change them every day for you. "Tired" rooms, I'm not sure what people want, exactly. The furniture isn't modern, but there are plenty drawers and hangers in the large wardrobe, and the room is clean and a good size.
I liked the location, about 10 mins walk from the main square but with a row of bars opposite (I recommend the Ship) where you can have a drink or 3 away from the hotel entertainment.
There are small things, like the extractor fan from the kitchen positioned infront of a bush so that the smells hit the bush and travel upwards to the balconeys of the rooms where we were. Also, the wifi being 1 hour per day only was incredibly frustrating in these days.However, overall it was a good hotel which I was very happy to visit, and will be again after refurbishment in Nov 2015.
