I have been going to the Woolmerchant Hotel since January 2001. the town was being rebuilt and so Carlos catered for the builders staying there. Since this work is over he has put a great deal of money and time into making it a people hotel. The rooms are decent and clean and the food is good and at reasonable prices.
