    The hotel is in an excellent position, but unfortuneately the room quality and standard was the worst I have ever experienced in 40 years of travel.

    The room was cramped & very small & looked out to a white wall. The facilities were very poor - no mirror or power point over the dressing table, no hairdryer, no luggage rack. We had to step over our suitcases to move around the bed. The advertised WiFi wasn't working. Only 16 parking places for 48 rooms with metered street parking outside. Bathroom was cramped with the door (which had a hole in it) just missing the toilet pan. No plug in the washbasin, 10 inch step up to the tiny shower which was only 65 x 61cm (25.5" x 24") with cracked tiles. A large mirror in a dark alcove had no light over it. A very bad experience staying in this room. Other parts of the hotel were OK.

    Audrey, the lady on reception when we arrived on the Sunday - very helpful and welcoming. Breakfast was also very good.

    The room were adequate and practical but basic, with some wear and tear. Not bad, but could be better for the price.

    Location - very near to train station & town centre

    We had an early morning flight so booked a taxi rather than getting the local bus to save time. Even though we booked the taxi via hotel reception the night before, the taxi arrived 20mins late. Hotel Reception were not at all sympathic & only rang the taxi company to check the detail after we insisted.

    The nearest hotel to the station and only 5 minutes walk to the harbour and old town. Very friendly staff and a good breakfast buffet.

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    The welcome was warm, the room was clean if a little on the small side but adequate. The breakfast was excellent and staff helpful and friendly.

    The steps at the front are not good for the disabled, a slope would be good.

    central located near central station.

    It was central

    The brochure said they had a restaurant but they did not. We booked a double room but it was so small we had to move the bed to use the wardrobe. The bathroom was so small that the door wouldn't open fully as it hit the toilet. We would not stay there again

    Sop over enroute

    Dissapointed with the room. More suitable for single use. Room very small. We stayed last year and were very pleased and decided to return but not sure whether we will do in the future. Bathroom extremely small. Room and bathroom looked very tired.

    We had a wonderful stay and would definatly visit again.

    the adjoining doors let though sound and smoke and should be blocked up.

    there was nothing positive to say about our stay in this hotel...We will not be using or recommending Booked.net after this experience.

    Rooms were too small and too hot and also too noisy

  • Older travelers
    9.2

    I liked the fact that we were informed clearly of everything at the arrival. We didn´t have to ask. I think that breakfast was very satisfactory.

  • Family with children
    4.6

    Although the location is not exactly pretty, it is practical at walking distance from port, town center and aquarium. The staff I met all spoke very well English and were friendly. The beds were of good quality. It is hard to find anything else positive about this place.

    Our 3 bed room was really a small double with an extra bed, leaving no space whatsoever to even park a small suitcase. Could hardly walk there. Room was very basic. The bathroom was less than basic and kitted out the cheapest possible way; when anyone flushed the toilet in the room above us, it sounded like it flushed our bathroom floor. ok for a night , but not a hotel I would recommend to anybody.
