The Heritage hotel is situated perfectly and looks great from the street. The room was nicely decorated and clean, gorgeous view of the hills and forest.
We found the bed quite comfortable and nice touches like 2 arm chairs, flat screen tv and ipod dock and a shower with fantastic preasure.
We found the check in staff very friendly and accommodating.
Unfortunately our room looked over the outside court yard and while the view was lovely every time i looked down all I could see was cigarette butts. also there is no ventilation apart from the window. and the noise from patrons drinking at the restaurant was very loud so we decided to forgo fresh air in favor of a quiet room. (It was very still and we were talking with one of the shop owners in the town and they did say it usually is quite windy this time of year)
We had 1 dinner and 1 breakfast in the restaurant. The food was good but sadly the atmosphere was not as good. Elevator music, need I say no more? It just needed to feel a bit more fun/ classy, especially for a saturday night.
We DID have a nice time though and there were alot of nice things about the place too.
All and all, I would stay again.
