We took a chance after reading so many mixed reviews on tripadvisor. Bad decision! It really is as bad as the reviews say. I cannot comment on the food as we made a (wise) decision not to eat there but the servise was poor, decor shabby, a terrible nights sleep in a draughty unclean room and the general feeling of run down, sub standard accomodation made us leave before our first mornings breakfast. Location is, however, superb. An experience never to be repeated.
