Greated warmly and receptionist remembered I had stayed there previously. Room spacious and well laid out for a business traveler. Only down side was getting the shower to operate at a comfortable temperature! Breakfast food was excellent and service was great.

Nice enough hotel and the staff were brilliant. I just hadn't realised that it was so close to the railway station so a bit noisy.
