Stayed here for one night as we were attending a function at Deane's restaurant round the corner. I was a bit worried about accessing the hotel, as due to an accident I was on crutches and from previous trips we weren't sure how close we could get to the front. However, there is a small pull-in area which meant I could be dropped with the luggage while my husband took the car to a car aprk (the hotel has no parking of its own).
Check in was efficient and friendly, but when we got to our room I realised that I would be able to use the shower, as you had to climb into a bathtub to do so. My husband went down to talk to reception, and with absolutely no bother we were put into a family room where there was a walk-in shower. The showers are excellent, by the way. Our room had a huge double bed plus a single, so there was plenty of room to spread ourselves. I found the room to be a bit warm, as there's no air-conditioning.
My only slight quibble would be with breakfast. Admittedly we were lateish arriving for the meal but it was well within the advertised time; some of the serving dishes were empty, the cereal bowls available were all slightly dirty and the soda bread was rock hard. On the plus side the staff could not have been more helpful to me - every time I moved from the table to the buffet someone would spring to carry things for me. Well done all round!
After check out I sat in the Piano Bar while my husband did some shopping, and the staff were again very friendly and helpful.
Incidentally, for any visitors who are disabled in any way, the public toilets on this floor are highly inaccessible, being reached by a number of stairs. However, there are accessible ones on the ground floor in the main restaurant, and I have to credit all the staff i came in to contact with for their helpfulness.
