Very spacious hotel
Simple, nice and not flashy, down to earth

Great staff, great food but a poor nights sleep!
Very nice looking hotel if you stay in the main front facing building. Great if you had a room with a balcony! I unfortunately had a room with a bright flashing light. The front desk staff gladly moved me to another room on my 2/3 nights however I still didn't sleep very well. With a combination of doors banging, bad pillows I didn't sleep well. The gym is well equipped and not used by many people so that was great. The rooms do not have air-con so may be hard to control the temperature in the summer but had adequate heating for me in January. The restaurant staff are amazing. Friendly, looked after us well and nothing was too much bother. The food is great too! Other thing to mention is the hotel. Others in my group complained about the very hilly accent to get to the hotel from town when walking.

Nice hotel
A nice hotel with a view on the city, short walk away from the centre. The room is comfortable, although the decor looks a little dated.

Excellent hotel in quieter part of the city
This is a very pleasant and well run hotel in a quiet residential part of town.It is about a 15 minute easy walk to the centre and a 10 euro taxi ride back. The railway station is close at hand 10 minute walk but steep to walk back up to the hotel. There is a very traditional pub in the small square near the hotel which is worth a visit. The rooms are super, ours large and very comfortable with great bathroom. Spotlessly clean and the bar/ restaurant area seemed good and reasonable from our limited use-we spent most time in the great places in town. In short a super, well run hotel if not in the thick of the city centre action.
