Overnight stop en route further north, so booked the cheapest price we could find and were not disappointed. We had room 1, at the back of the hotel, so it has no view. There is a market in the square twice a week and the set up is from early morning, so perhaps a room at the back could be an advantage. Our room was a little small, but more than adequate, well decorated and with an interesting ensuite bathroom that was up a few steps. Comfortable bed and furnishings. The staff are all very friendly and helpful.
We had dinner in the restaurant, which far exceeded expectations. Extremely good quality food, well cooked and presented and for a reasonable price. Dinner for 2, bed and breakfast came to just over £100, plus £20 for a decent bottle of wine. There is plenty of free parking at the rear of the hotel.
Being very picky, the only criticism is the bathroom. The water pressure to the shower is very low, making a good shower very difficult. Apparently, it is a "known problem" and is being sorted, but if you are staying more than one night and like a decent fierce shower in the morning to wake you up, it might be worth a call to confirm that you get a room that has some water pressure.
One on the list of places to stay again.
