Had a fantastic stay here. The breakfast was brilliant, the dinner was fantastic and the room was gorgeous. The only downfall is the layout of the hotel, there's a lot of stairs and a lot of going up and down steps even after using the lift, I know there's not much the hotel can do about that but when booking...

I was pleasantly surprised and is a lot nicer than the website gives it credit for. We stayed midweek and enjoyed it. The breakfast was good but the bar food was just average. The location was very central. It was a very reasonably priced three night stay which included breakfast for 119 euro.
