Compact and bisu...... Lovely hotel situated 5 mins from the old town but far enough to drown out the noise from bar street and town square.. Extremely friendly staff that make you feel welcome from the minute you arrive... Smart little bar/cafe next door... Rooms are small but serve their purpose as to provide a base for your trip.
