We stayed here 'off-season' for a night in 2 rooms.
Hotel is a throw back to teh old days, its very regal in looks and structure, but does come over rather tired. Im guessing in summer with more guests (I believe we were the only ones!) it would present better, but tbh it was a bit depressing. However It was good to stay in teh old town rather than the somewhat pretentious Marina area.
Staff were friendly and helpful (somewhat complicated Wifi set up meaning a ticket per device but limited to 2 tickets per room....).
Rooms were basic, and cold.nut clean.
Breakfast was OK.
Secure parking to rear limited spaces so assume Summer may be different.
