Upon inspection by staff, it wasn't connected. So off to another room. This room had only a queen size bed, which is ok. But when the...

There has been an ownership change so they are in the process of upgrading, but with little inconvenience to guests. Rooms are nice, location is good and staff could not be nicer or more helpful. The bar and restaurant are well run with good service, although prices for food and drink everywhere are a shock to an American.

Stayed at this hotel 2 years previous, and can only say without hesitation, would recommend the change of ownership. Staff most helpful and am pleased to say welcome "seniors", with an appropriate discount. Rooms have been refurbished and we even enjoyed an upgrade, much appreciated by ourselves and friends. Would recommend this hotel for it's locality, cleanliness and staff.
