Check in was not until 3PM, got to hotel at about 11AM and the very kind lady said our room was nearly ready, approx. 1 hour - so we got to our room 3 hours early which was great. We had room 18 - mattress was rock hard, that was the only problem, apart from that the room was fine. Location is pretty much in the centre, only a few seconds walk to banks and shops.
The food in the pub was excellent, small choice and limited specials board - prices were the same as a mainland pub.
overall very good, would go back again in a heartbeat.
