Central location with excellent service
Service at this hotel was fantastic, the staff could not be more welcoming. The concierge even helped us to retrieve my partner's mobile phone after he dropped it in a taxi. We will definitely stay here again!

Short break
Hotel staff were great and very friendly, the location was perfect for the new town with only a short walk to the old town. The hotel was very comfortable with very nice décor and a lovely bar and coffee shop. The only downside was that our room looked over an alley and you could hear the bottle bins been filled during the night

Great, with little extras that really made our stay. Anniversary gifts, and room tuck box was a great addition. Special stay and the deluxe room was fantastic.
