Lonely Planet review
In a group of grand townhouses dating from 1895, but with mod-cons including a lift, this warm, welcoming family-run hotel is just a 10-minute walk from the centre, with great public-transport connections. Comfortable rooms are decorated in autumnal hues; there's a charming back garden and secure parking (per day €15). Rates include breakfast.
