    Everything, starting from availability for a very late check in (We arrived at 3 AM), very tasty breakfast, very professional staff and even arrangement to pick us from the airport.

    The only backdraw I can think of was unusually rainy weather, which of course it was not a hotel mistake. Otherwise it is a truely superb service for a right price.

    The staff were lovely. Towels were abundant.

    The hotel was very run down - it looked far better in the photographs. The bathroom was smelly, the tiles were chipped and dangerous, the shower head was blocked with limescale.
