The location and cleanliness are perfect. Comfortable beds with great facilities. All restaurants, pubs and shops on the doorstep. The down side is the lack of privacy on the balcony from our neighbours. Also lack of hot water in the shower. The staff are all extremely welcoming and helpful. Would highly recommend. Eat out at Zachos' tavern in the old...
