Breakfast was excellent. Location was good. Receptionists were very helpful and the parking was secure.
The room, 141 was very poor for a 5* hotel. Dirty carpets, paint peeling off the wall in the bathroom, part of the shower was missing, the water hose was rusty and the shower trzy grouting was dirty and the extractor fan did not work!! I wonder if booking.com customers get the worst room! A 5* experience? Definitely not!
The location and spaciousness of the public areas
Our room was very shabby and tired looking for the price . The carpet was stained and there were cracked tiles in the bedroom. We were travelling with our 2 small dogs and were charged 20€ per dog per night . I considered that a lot seeing as the hotel didn’t provide anything for them.
Quiet hotel in excellent location in town. Clean with efficient, helpful staff.
Slomewhat spartan interior - definitely not cosy but functional. Good but pricey breakfast.
Wonderful old building that was largely wasted.
All the fittings of our room were poor. No air-con. Loo seat not fitting, no bath, all windows and doors of very poor quality, carpet badly soiled, safe inoperative, one basin blocked, no easy chairs, kitchen dirty, no coffee machine. Also no restaurant except for breakfast.
Very good, but no other facilities for eating apart from breakfast, which was excellent but expensive.
The pool was minute and shallow. The photo in the brochure was deceptive. There was a piano bar, complete with piano but no pianist. One of the two barmen was unhelpful, almost surly. On one occasion it took twenty-five minutes to find him. With no restaurant (after breakfast) guests were reduced to eating take-aways in the piano room. No real service from staff, although all willing to be helpful. For example, you carrried your own bags to and from your room, but receptionists always anxious to help in other ways.
