Nice location to stay in the summer
Liked the location and the hotel. Tried a courtyard room first. No view and fairly small. Lake facing rooms have a good view but can get hot when the sun is out. These are attic rooms and so are restricted headroom (did not stay in the cells which are downstairs). As the hotel is effectively on an island, there is only one way on and off. If for some reason there is a blockage you would not be able to get your car out. Car parking for the hotel is controlled entry. Nice walk around the haven and marina in the evening. However might be a bit bleak in the winter. The hotel has its own bistro and is next to a multi-screen cinema and a museum of 20th century and the tourist information office.

Quirky converted prison
We loved the fact that this was converted prison. The rooms (lower floor) were basic, but well worth the money esp given they had private bathroom, and they were adequate size for single use. Perhaps on the small side if you are sharing. It was a little noisy on the Sat eve as some guests returning from their night out seemed to have no consideration for others, but that can happen anywhere and we are still happy with our stay. The food in the hotel restaurant was also really nice.

An Experience!
Great surroundings, accessibility to walks, local shops, restaurants, cycling (everyone cycles). The hotel was a prison originally. The rooms were originally cells of the prison. Each hotel room was actually one and a half cells (the half was converted into the bath room) some rooms had bunk beds, some had a double bed. We went for the experience of sleeping in a prison.
