Cons: The fact that I booked well in advance for a "special" rate via Booking.com only to find that a friend booked nearer the time at a better rate despite the hotel being pretty booked up. Breakfast is excellent but then it should be at Euro25. Fast internet is free but it is not that fast. For the faster internet you have to pay Euro 9.00 for 24 hours. It's all little additions to a hotel that is not cheap. Would be nice for it to be included in the rate. I managed to find a parking space in the Hotel Car Park but I know lots of people didn't despite pre-booking.

9.2 Excellent
Pros: Locatio is very nice, and there is a free parking on selected days in a week. The bed was very good, and in general the room was nice. The extra coffee in the room is a nice addition.
Cons: The hotel itslef is very nice, I would only complain that I paid for one fruit juice 5,40€, when you compare that to the price of the breakfast (14€) it is not realistic. Breakfast was good, but as the menu was not on every table I did not for example know that they prepare fresh eggs per order. This is something the waiter should have mention that. It would have been nice.

Pros: The rooms were warm, immaculate and comfortable with bath robes, toiletries and sweeties too - we really enjoyed our stay and we had such a warm welcome and lots of help. We will definitely stay again if we're in the area. The owner allowed us to leave our bags while we attended a show. There was an excellent restaurant near the location called Mezzo Mezza (I think that I spelt that right!).

There was no soap in the bathroom also.

Pros: Super friendly staff and the free coffee and water was top for the room price.
Cons: The curtains didn't really block the light, and the showerhead leaked, not enough to be a problem, but it will need fixing.
