Friendly place to stay
Posted Mar 11, 2016
Very warm welcome from staff. Kept bags for us as we were too early to check in. An hour later, bags had been taken to our room for us, still before official check-in time.
Room was small, as we expected, but the bed was big and comfortable. There were wardrobes and bed side tables. There was an old TV, but we didn't try it as we were too busy!
No in-room hospitality tray, but hot water and tea/coffee available downstairs in breakfast area. As well as the breakfast area, there is a 'resident's lounge' on the reception level that had a modern flat screen TV and books for loan. There were comfy chairs here and tourist info leaflets. The staff at reception are happy to book tours for you, they also booked a restaurant for us.
We didn't have the included breakfast as we left too early each day on our tours, so can't comment on that! We did take packed lunches and they were fine.
We found some great restaurants within a short walk. There is plenty of choice for all budgets in this area.
