    Good

    The Hotel staff were very freindly and offered advice on the best places to visit.

    I thought the room very small and the decor needs to be revamped. In fact most of the passageways and courtyard is in need of some TLC.

  • 6.6
    Good

    The atmosphere of the hotel is very charming and it is very quiet in the middle of the city.

    The wireless internet did not function, and hotel staff had no idea how to fix it, besides calling a technician which never turned up.

    Good

    The location was great - the staff helpful and friendly. Very homely, welcoming - a nice family hotel feel, which makes a change if you are always used to standard business hotels.

    The hotel room needed some maintenance: missing plug from wash basin (not replaced), lamp not working, tv not very reliable. Some problems when checking out due to confusion about tariffs for a second room we had booked for a colleague. However, resolved ok, and staff offered their apologies and a coffee due to the delay.

    Superb

    The staff was excellent. Probably one of the best experiences I've had with hotel staff ever. They all seemed to be happy to go out of their way to help you. Small issues (like not having a phone charger) were miraculously solved. They went out of their way to help you and make you feel welcome. Good breakfast. In house chocolate shop.

    Not really dislikes but: tiny TV in my room (i guess youbdont stay in hotel to watch tv) but a larger one would be nice. No ironing board / iron. No doubt could have requested one to be delivered to room.

    City centre location. Staff very friendly. Our room (on the third floor) was large with a very comfortable bed. A choice of restaurants - we enjoyed very much the meal which we had in the Fish Restaurant.

    Exceptional

    Great location, very interesting structure of the hotel, with a yard in the middle, nice atmosphere, very friendly staff. Excellent breakfast with freshly made orange juice! We had a last minute deal, this was a great value for money.

    I would prefer a double bed, we had twin beds moved together. But this is very minor compared to the overall great stay. I Would definitely recommend this hotel to everyone.

    Good location, nice building

    Steep stairs, no elevator. Room was dated, double jacuzzi but low water pressure so would take ages to fill the tub. Overall mediocre value for money

  • 6.6
    Good

    We particulary liked the food. We had booked half board and the evening meal was of a very high standard although the service could be a bit slow. We liked the fact that the hotel had its own bakery on site.

    We thought that the hotel seemed to be in two parts. The front part looked very elegant and clean. The rear of the hotel where our bedroom was situated was badly in need of refurbishment and the fire exit signs seemed to be non-existent. Also the stairs and balcony surrounds were made of wood which was rotting. We did mention this to hotel staff who said that the hotel was being refurbished but in our opinion this part of the hotel was unsafe as there was loose carpet and very steep steps near our bedroom. There were also steps that could easily be missed due to lack of lighting and warning signs. The courtyard garden had sunshades that badly needed cleaning and also there were pigeon droppings around the balconies and on the stairs which we felt was unacceptable. Although we liked the hotel and enjoyed our stay we felt the part where we stayed was a fire hazard and some areas felt dangerous to walk through and therefore would not recommend the hotel until these issues were resolved.

    Nice and cozy

    Wifi wasn't working Having to go through the "garden" to enter my room. Most rooms need some paint...

    Excellent breakfast

    Quite difficult to reach the room. A lift should be recommended due to the strong inclination of the stairs.
