Nice clean comfy room with air con and a lovley shower. The room was serviced daily and tea/coffee provided. Parking was a bit of a mission which was the only bugbear here as there is no on site parking. We had a lovley stay, close to everything and friendly staff. Thank you so much.

Reception hours advertised on Wotif were different to reception hours on booking in. I had to make a special trip to collect the keys. Lacking nice little touches that would have been consistent with the quality of the accommodation. Eg. Water in the Fridge Only one face washer and one soap. Only one biscuit. No tissues.
