I had read the reviews and booked the hotel on the back of them, and I wasn't disappointed. At first, the hotel seems a little quirky - you enter via a narrow "bar"-type entrance and I did wonder if I'd booked the right place.
However, the hotel manager was increadibly friendly. He helped me work out where to park (guests can park in the space owned by a rental agency recommended by the hotel) and carried my heavy bag up the quirky winding stair case.
They have free internet and a good spread for breakfast, despite only having 10 rooms. And they are very very friendly and attentive - I too got my jar of honey on leaving!
The rooms themselves could do with some sprucing up, but it is an old building, and they are clean and well looked after. The only downside is that there is a lot of noise between rooms, esp on the wooden floors. However, I stayed overlooking the square and was not bothered by the noise from the street, as the windows are dowble-glazed.
The hotel is in an excellent location, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.
