I stayed in one of the round silos, and enjoyed the experience, though the shower rroom was a bit cramped. The bed was very comfortable, and my room had a fridge, kettle, air con. etc. The dining room is large, and catered for tour groups, with pretty basic food and breakfasts, but hey, there was plenty for all. Lovely to sit out on the terrace at dusk with our drinks, though watch out for the midgies!
Yes, the swimming pool was small, but I enjoyed the opportunity for a refreshing swim after a long trip on a hot day.
Staff were very pleasant,and the young employees manning the reception were very helpful when I was trying to get Wifi. (very random internet reception)
A good average comfortable hotel, and I would stay here again. Very convenient for the tours of the battlefields.
