The front desk staff were all exceptionally friendly and knowledgeable. Decent breakfast and roof top pool. Main issue is that the hotel and indeed the whole area was overrun by terribly uncouth British tourists. It was surreal to observe them swilling beers at 10 am while watching Royal Harry’s wedding on TV.

I must say that many of the reviews do a disservice to the hotel - it’s unfair to the new owners who seem to have really improved the place. Staff were friendly, rooms were clean and location could not be better in the old town. Breakfast was as good as any of the street places and included in our rate. The only negative is that we were unaware that a booking is either a twin OR a double, like some strange lucky dip that you only find out what you have gotten when you arrive to book in. We were a party of 6 guys and ended up with 3 double rooms but in fairness the managed to give us 2 twins then we drew straws for the double. Place is being fully refurbished next year, I think it’s great value for money, second to none in terms of location.
