Went with the mrs to this hotel in early April and it does exactly what it says in the tin. Nice and clean rooms and reception, bar a bit expensive - €5 for a bottle of beer.

Our room had twin duvets on a double bed whereas my parents had a double duvet on a double bed - we both ordered double rooms. We didn't try breakfast, which was very expensive at €21 per... More

Spacious room with comfortable bed. Location excellent short walk to main square. Parking difficult with the hotel staff not much help. Comfortable lounge area with bar. Breakfast time was busy but with varied choice of food helped along by interesting view of city from 3rd floor
