We stayed there at the beginning of September for a week, primarily to use as a base for sight-seeing trips. We knew from other reviewers to expect small rooms so this wasn't a problem as we were out all day and evenings and really only came back each evening to shower and sleep. Having said that, my parents were with us and on arrival we were disappointed to discover how small their room was. ( no wardrobe, only 4 hangers behind a wall mirror, and this wasn't even the petite room). As my father is registered partially sighted with very limited vision the lack of space would cause him problems so we enquired at reception if a more suitable room was available and were delighted when the receptionist upgraded them to a larger room at no extra charge. Excellant service! Only small gripe is that there could be a better variety at breakfast ( only 1 type of bread) and maybe some prepared fresh fruit. Otherwise had a very nice stay, spotlessly clean with the most comfortable beds we have slept in!
