Stayed here for a last minute break during September and have no complaints at all, hotel was clean and modern with good sized rooms and bathroom which had both a bath and shower with good pressure and hot water. Bed was comfortable and room was cleaned daily. Breakfast was european so no cooked option but was tasty all the same
