Contrary to a previous reviewer, I enjoyed my veg lasagne in the pub - it had chunks of vegetables which I was craving after so long on the road. Now to the nitty-gritty: the noise from the main street, plus the banging of hallway doors, plus the reverberating, creaky sound of people walking on the stairs all combined into 1 night of interrupted sleep. The shower was a joke: very little water and a very high nozzle with scant pressure, which made it impossible for a woman to rinse off soap. Don't even think about a shampoo! Even my taller husband said that he would hold his hands high in the shower to collect enough water to carry down to the soap on his body. This is a family-run hotel and they seem serious about collecting evaluations, but I didn't see much money re-invested in their rooms. I also agree with another reviewer that the breakfast was a disappointment: little choice, no oatmeal/porridge, 1 cup of bland coffee. We paid 90 euros for 2 adults, which I think was only 10 euros off their quoted rate. OVER-PRICED for messing up the basics of a good night's sleep and a decent shower.
