My husband and I stayed here midweek in the winter of 2013. The town becomes unbelievably busy at weekends, mainly with Spanish shoppers and restaurant goers but it's a lovely place to visit. It's cold in winter time here, with frost most mornings and evenings.
This hotel was in the modern part of town and within easy access of the town centre including the taxi rank.
Rooms are spacious, we checked out the rooms before staying as we had previously been booked into a hotel in the old part of town which had very small rooms and short beds - strange but true, if you are near 6ft ask to see the room.
There was free, fast wifi, widescreen tv with usb connection and remote, good air conditioning which we needed as heating because it was quite cold when we were there, -3 C most nights. The bed was large and comfy, plenty of pillows and extra blankets. Lots of storage, large wardrobe build-in. The bathroom was fine, clean and everything worked as it should.
Our room had a balcony, useful for hanging out your laundry (we were on a long trip with small amount of clothing) as the front of the hotel received good sun during the day despite the cold nights. The lift works well and the hallways are well lit with sensor lights. Breakfast was average and adequate for a budget hotel, no complaints about it, eat as much as you want buffet.
Considered a budget hotel however we were very happy there and would have stayed longer but the entire hotel was prebooked for the weekend and we had to find an alternative for the remainder of our stay in town. We were teaching locally for a period of 10days. There is a large tv/entertainment room on the top floor so check that out if you don't want to spend all your time in your room or you want to meet some new people.
