Stayed here for a wedding a couple weeks ago and had a good time. There is ample parking and free wifi in the lobby and breakfast was good. It was only a 30 second walk into town - although I suspect there are better shopping areas.
There was live music in the bar in the evenings and generally a great atmosphere around the place. There were lots of locals about the hotel which is always a good sign.
Room was fine. Lots of nooks and cranny's. Not sure how clean it was as there was a dirty sock lying on the desk and the bath had lots of long dark hairs on the floor (I'm blond). However, these were minor things to us. We were on the top floor and could hear the music from the bar, but was dull enough not to annoy us.
Will stay here again if I'm ever in the area, and talking to other guests at the wedding think we got the best value, service and the best atmosphere. I have recommended this hotel to other people already.
