The hotel is about 5 minutes walk from the town walls. The instructions on the website are good to get you to within a few yards (as will be a sat nav) but I must admit I missed it at first. As you come away from the walls you will first follow the road around to the left and pass the churches on either side of the road. The road then turns right and there is a no-entry sign ahead of you. The hotel is in a courtyard on the left at this corner, there is a sign but I must admit to missing it. You can't actually see the hotel from the road you turn into the courtyard and then right into another courtyard where there is some hotel parking. This is free and there is more free parking nearby if all the spaces have been taken.
The hotel is on the first floor and note that reception is closed from 12.30 to 3.30. I can't remember when it closes in the evening.
I must admit I only noticed that closing times when we were en-route and realised we would be arriving about 12.45. So I emailed reception and the owner kindly waited for us and delayed his lunch!
As I say the owner held off from lunch to cover our delayed arrival and check out was also very friendly.
Room size, comfort, amenities and cleanliness
The room was large as was the bathroom and we also had an extra single bed in the room. There is a small TV and there is a small table and chairs outside each room.
You have free wifi access though you need the code which I forgot to ask for so I had to wait until the morning to get it when we came back after dinner, I tried to log on then realised the code was not in the room handbook and reception had closed.
The room has an air conditioner.
There is also a TV room available.
The breakfast was good.
At €95 I thought this was good value given the included breakfast, wifi , parking and location.
I would definitely use this hotel again.
