Clean and spacious rooms, bar food good
Clean spacious room. Bathroom a bit cold. We stayed at the front of the hotel and there was a bit of on-street noise but it didn't go on too late. We ate in the bar in the evening and the food was very good.

Overall a wonderful stay. Had an excellent dinner and breakfast. Only issue was that the Wifi was down during the trip, forcing my partner and I to actually talk to each other rather than playing on our phones.
