Not very friendly on arrival staff looked a bit shifty really, the hotel has a beautiful facade with lot of character on entrance, but like its room is faded and rather neglected.
Did not dine or wish to, and indeed breakfast was poor, rooms are large and quaint but not that well cleaned, had to use a bath towel for my bedside rug (not putting my feet on that floor).
Large pleasant garden with excellent swimming pool.
You can can walk out onto the street from here and buy a few bits.
Wifi is by purchase of expensive logon card, of which some are 'use once only', and others run out after '24hrs' of 1st login, no real explanation given at time of sale.
Whilst there the agent made contact and asked how the hotel was, we told him, he went to the hotel, and afterwards the change of staff attitude was a transformation to be seen to be believed. How staff can alter from being shifty, idle and unfriendly one day, to smiling, helpful and happy the next is a product I wish could package and export. Was it that simple??
