We stayed in this hotel for two nights.
It was very cold here at night and so had to light a fire in our room, the first basket of logs were supplied free of charge but extra logs were chargeable with no other form of heating.
The restaurant was very cold, both in the evening and in the morning. The food was very average.
When we went to pay our bill they were rude about the condition of our US Dollar bills and insulted us by saying that "they don't accept "dirty money"". We complained to the General Manager who tried to patch up the damage.
This could be a really nice hotel. Many staff try really hard but sadly the quality needs improving.

A former British guest house, now an exclusive hotel with just eleven rooms with an open fireplace.
