      4/5 Good

      • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

      Perfect for going to the Playhouse just across the street. Very reasonable price, quiet room - couldn't hear the traffic at all and great breakfast, wasn't expecting it have such a good selection. Only criticism is that breakfast area's a bit small and too cowded and we weren't there on a busy day! I would definitely stay here again.
