We we luck enough to have a two storey room for our stay and it was very comfortable, the bed was cosy, the bathroom clean and well appointed and the staff all helpful and pleasant, we didn't eat in the restaurant, so can't comment on the food, but it was a nice stay all in all.

Great hotel with lovely view from our room balcony. Staff were all friendly and eager to please. I loved looking out from the balcony onto the square opposite the hotel where I stood and listened to a rendition of classical notes played by a solo musician (busker). My anniversary was made perfect by that albeit not from the hotel.

For those who always wanted to stay at a 5-Star hotel but can’t or won’t pay the room rates, this is their chance to experience 1st class accommodations at a fraction of the cost.
