The hotel is close to the centre, next to both the river and the busy riverfront road. Each room is different and ours, room 12 on the ground floor, was spacious and had a very high ceiling and was decorated in white and off-white throughout - walls, distressed furniture, bedding, the lot. We arrived on a particularly hot a muggy day, so the cool colouring was very welcome. The aircon draws on outside air, so the plus side is that it doesn't use the water based system that can dry the air (apparently), the downside is that it isn't so effective when it is really hot and muggy. However, when I asked at reception about how the aircon worked, as our rom was still very warm, the receptionist found us a standalone cooler. She really was super helpful - helping us find a legal space to leave our hire car in while we unloaded our bags and checked in, and explaining where to park, where to eat and how to use the wi-fi. It was playing up a bit which was why I couldn't log in, and she called to let me know when it had been fixed.
The bathroom was finished to a high standard and had a nice shower.
We had breakfast in the vaulted breakfast area, which is attractive and manages to combine a charming olde-worlde feel with evident cleanliness and good decorative order. The selection is modest - some breads, meat and cheeses a couple of hot choices, plus cereal and yoghurt/milk etc. The big plus for me is that its only ten euros, which is very good value for the light breakfast that I prefer.
Check out time is 11.00 and I would have liked a little later, but they do have a cupboard to securely lock your bags in if you want to go out. If you give them your car park ticket, they are able to apply a discount to it.
