Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Disliked: Amenities
It was perfect for our one night stay as we could go to the pub which was a couple of metres away for dinner. Loved how we could go back to the room and watch a movie. The things that were not good was how uncomfortable the bed was if you like a firm bed this place is for you. But we woke up feeling terrible our backs were so sore. As for the bathroom it was super tiny and if you are bigger than a size 16 good luck with trying to have a shower super small. The sound proofing was great so no outside noise which I loved.

Property was clean and quiet. Located above the hotel but our room was almost sound proof. Had dinner and a few drinks at the hotel, fairly priced, great menu, and delicious.
