Have just returned from a four night break at this hotel. As other reviewers have noted it is in a fantastic location and only about 5 minutes walk from the Main Street, with lots of restaurants. Our room was a fair size and has a sofa where you could read or watch TV, which was great. However, it was spoilt by the fact that the sofa was grubby and had a great big grease stain on the seat. Also, the lighting leaves a lot to be desired. The main light on the ceiling was a 3-spot halogen light and two of the bulbs were not working on arrival. I asked for it to be fixed; one was replaced and I was told that the other one couldn't be fixed for another 2 days - incidentally It never was fixed. Also there was tea and coffee facilities but no kettle to boil the water! I also asKed for a kettle,and was told I would have to wait until the morning as the kettle had just broken that day (Friday). On the saturday the kettle did not appear but I had to go and ask for it. Other people have commented on the quality of service in this hotel and I therefore found it rather lacking.
I do agree with other reviewers that this hotel is a bit shabby which is a shame as the locatioN is so good.
