We stayed only one night and would have no hesitation returning. This is an ancient hotel, close to the town centre. We had a superb room, large and comfortable. We had been warned that Saturday night could be noisy due to the karaoke which would continue until 1am. Fortunately we couldn't hear it from our room. We both slept well.

Very clean. Only downside to the room was the old faded pictures which have seen better days on the walls :( We had...
