Excellent service, but not for the Galaxie
This is an odd review, because it is basically for the staff and the breakfast :-) The hotel had a flood overnight before we arrived. We had a phone call before we left home, explaining the situation and telling us that we could stay in their sister property (an apartment in the centre of town). They couldn't be more apologetic, and they let us park at the hotel, and offered to run us in and out of town, but we chose to walk (it's a 35 minute walk to town). We walked back in the morning for breakfast, which was very good. So - Excellent service, very nice breakfast. And the hotel looks lovely too!

Friendliest hotel
Had to stay here for weeks on end for work reasons. Lovely people who run the place and work there. Couldn't be more helpful and go more out of their way for you.

Quick decision on this time of turmoil. Turned out a very good choice! Good size room, comfortable bed, clean bath. Window was old and not air tight but radiator kept cold away. I couldn’t open the TV, small things but I would definitely visit again if needed
