I would stay again

Hotel was a bit dated. A couple of small issues. I would stay again though.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Decor a bit dated but absolutely lovely hotel, nothing was too much effort and everyone was incredibly helpful and nice. Breakfast a bit expensive for what was available but nicely cooked. Clientele were toward the older but this meant our sore headed party could have breakfast in relative quiet! My room was lovely and my request for a cot was immediately fulfilled. Again nothing too much for the team. Would definitely stay again.
