I originally booked a single room and it was tiny. They managed to change me after 2 nights for a reasonable increase in cost. I had told them the reason I wanted to change particularly was that it was my birthday and when I arrived back after a days sightseeing to get my new room, the reception staff had a cake for me!! This was lovely but not as fabulous as the balloons on my bed giving me another wonderful surprise. In general, the staff were super helpful and took time to answer questions and to try and make my stay an enjoyable one. The rooms are small but clean and have everything you need, including lots of hot water. The breakfast was okay but on my last day the lady in charge of breakfast insisted I try a croissant. I had one with yellow creme and it was fabulous - much better than the other offerings. So grab the croissants. My only real complaint was the noise on the Saturday night. There was music and singing and it started at 11 pm and didn't finish till about 3. The next 2 nights were fine but then on the Tuesday night there was the same problem. Not sure if I was just unlucky but it certainly disturbed my sleep. Other positive things though are the location and the price and again the great staff!!!
