Good stay, excellent location
Excellent location, only 10 minutes from Waverley station. We arrived early and were able to check in as a room was available. The rooms are quite spacious and very clean and comfortable. The only issue was I found the bed too soft and you seemed to roll into the middle. Breakfast was ok, never had to wait for a table. The only downside was that you couldn’t order anything fresh. We would have liked to have been able to order poached eggs. Overall the stay was ok and we would stay again if the price was right.
