I needed a hotel that was well placed to move around the area, the Velemar was well placed, smart and comfortable with good restaurants nearby. It feels like a boutique hotel and the staff are welcoming and helpful, breakfast was excellent. the price paid represented superb value.

Don't be put off that it is only a 3 star. It is only a 3 star because they only do breakfast. But the breakfast room is lovely, on the top floor, you can sit inside or outside with lovely views across town.The hotel has a lovely small pool which gets the sun till about 7.
