Had an amazing stay at Hotel Ceilidh-Donia. The location is very central and one can find everything around the Hotel from pubs to supermarkets. They offer such delicious breakfast and the hosts are very friendly.

Stayed here for one night with friends to visit Christmas Market. Couldn't fault this Hotel. We had a triple room which was very well equipped, immaculately clean, very comfortable beds and a fantastic breakfast. Hosts were very informative and helpful. Excellent value for money.
