Rated 5 out of 5.
Lovely hotel, staff very friendly and helpful. Room very small but beautifully decorated, clean and warm. Easy to get into city centre by bus. Will certainly return....
Rated 4 out of 5.
Lovely staff and extremely helpful in all respects. Breakfast delicious but dinner rather stodgy, The room was spotless and we had a wonderful view of the hills. We would certainly stay again if the dinner menu was more varied and changed more often as we were told it only changed every few months. .Basically the menu lacked inspiration and the light touch....
