Stayed here for two nights pre-booked. First room we were allocated was very dark, being in the modern block built between the two original buildings, window looking straight onto walls and other bedroom windows. However, when I asked about this we were moved to a really nice room, side-on to the highway nearby, but well insulated for noise.
Lovely traditional hotel, rooms and public areas nicely decorated. Excellent breakfast included in the price, vast choice of hot and cold items. Staff all nice, although bartender during "happy hour" could have been more friendly- possibly because I had a beer rather than sampling the massive range of wines. Didn't have dinner in the hotel, but restaurant is clearly fine dining and seemed very popular. Parking next door. Hotel is very well located for sight-seeing and near a large variety of bars/restaurants nearby. Good value overall.
