I have traveled widely in Europe and the Far East but have NEVER, ever, been given such a TINY ROOM.
Entering the room you have to do a sideways shuffle to get between the wardrobe and a square table, on which I had to put my suitcase, since there was no suitcase stand.
The heating wasn't working (evenings were chilly). On the first occasion the man from reception (not Daniel) said I'd set it incorrectly and succeeded in getting one third of the radiator warm. I suggested there might be air in the radiator but was ignored. On the second evening the radiator was completely cold again. Reported it to the same man, who said he's come up and have a look at it. I sat waiting for an hour but he never came.
The extractor fan in the bathroom wasn't working (you couldn't hear it running). Consequently the bathroom didn't smell quite, er, fresh. The cleaning staff, perhaps aware of this, left the bathroom door wide open. The result was that the whole room didn't smell quite fresh either.
Breakfasts were very good and hotel facilities, e.g. library, reception were attractive.
I am not saying that couples or families wouldn't have a better experience but I would NEVER recommend this hotel for a SINGLE TRAVELER. Frankly I was left with the feeling that, as a single traveler I wasn't really worth bothering with.
They will arrange for a taxi to take you and your heavy suitcase up the steep hill to the station..... but be warned that it it will cost you £10.40 for a 4 min ride.
