Located in the center of town two blocks from the Main Street. Lobby is spacious and there is a bar and meeting and sitting rooms and game room as well as a restaurant on the first floor. Went to our room on the second floor and experienced a very strong smell which I believe was from the cleaning products used on the carpets. My wife has multiple chemical sensitivity(MCS) and artificial scents can trigger migraines. Generally scents don’t bother me but I found the scent to be exceedingly strong and not pleasant. The room wasn’t any better. They did move us to another room without carpeting which was better but not great. Bed linens were also cleaned with a scented product. My wife spent the night with her head mostly out of the open window in our room. We were traveling with a group and stayed here again two nights later. Hotel moved us to the top floor in a very nice room with a cathedral ceiling and no carpeting. They cleaned the room and linens with vinegar and unscented products. Definitely much better but still some lingering scents.
MCS is becoming more widely recognized and many many hotels now realize clean does not necessarily have to have a scent it is best to be odor free.

We had a very lovely stay here! The hotel is quite nice with really excellent service. Upon pulling in, we had people offering to help us with our bags and they also provided a glass of fresh juice. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The breakfast is fantastic and there is a bar in the lobby, a courtyard, a ping pong table and billiards.

One thing to note, our room did not have air conditioning, so we needed to open the windows in order to keep the room at a decent temperature. However, it's very loud when you open the windows, which then impacts your sleep quality. It wouldn't stop me from staying here again though. Really liked this property and it's in a great location.

I was really disappointed with this hotel, it looks lovely on the outside, the corridors are nicely decorated and smell nice and then you open your hotel room door and are hit by a terrible smell in your bathroom - which is of sewage and damp. There was a drain in the bathroom and I presumed the smell was coming from there and there was a large section of grout missing around the bath, where water from the shower easily reaches. I reported this after our first night to reception and they said they would send maintenance while we were out during the day. Upon our return the smell was still there and there was still a large section of missing grout so they clearly did nothing about my complaint.

I had a poor night’s sleep as the bed was very uncomfortable and my back was sore and stiff in the morning. The shower was irritating because the pressure fluctuated and so did the temperature, scalding you one minute and very cold then next. Both the bedroom and bathroom need re-decorating.

Breakfast was average, the 2 staff members were absolutely miserable and lazy - they stood by the door talking, ignoring all the tables that needed clearing and when they eventually did clear one they moved exceptionally slowly.

I wouldn't stay here again.

Excellently located hotel within easy walking distance of the many bars and eateries. Lots of tour offices within easy reach to arrange your daily excursions. Good sized well appointed rooms. Staff very helpful. Breakfast starts nice and early 06.30 and offers varied dietary options.
Only negative I could find was the in room lack of tea or coffee making facilities. However tea and coffee are extremely well priced at the bar, not very useful early in the morning.

Two blocks from the main street, nice room, pretty good breakfast buffet, service was generally helpful. Beware removing food from the dining room, charges will be added to your bill. Our room looked out on a quiet courtyard.

While this may be an older hotel with smaller rooms, it was fully ok for our one night stay. Service was quick and very friendly and I really liked their focus on turning is into a fully sustainable business as well as the little courtyard garden.
Location is perfect, just far enough from the main road to avoid any noise but within walking distance to shops, restaurants etc.

It's so sustainable that it prints 'sustainable' on each of the individually plastic wrapped single use items in the hotel...
Other than that, professional staff, lovely big room, though soundproofing is poor, not great for light sleepers. Breakfast is poor, and wifi isn't great either, frequently drops out. Good location!

This is a nice hotel in a central part of the town. The staff are very professional and helpful, and the facilities are good. You may wish to consider eating elsewhere to avoid the risk of being trampled by a bus load of tourists in the hotel restaurant who pile their plates high from the breakfast buffet in a way that suggests that this may be their last meal. This was observed each morning when the restaurant opens. I acknowledge that this has nothing to do with the otherwise excellent facilities. Just a word of advice for people looking for a less chaotic breakfast.

The hotel was beautiful. Everyone in the staff was very welcoming, helpful and nice, specially the receptionists.
Breakfast was lovely, lots of options and everything was delicious.
The location was perfect, only two streets away from the main street yet very quiet and peaceful.

The one bad thing I’d have to point out, is that the wifi connection was very very poor. Pretty much no service at all in my room.

But overall was a lovely stay and I would definitely recommend.
