Lovely hotel in middle of town, very convenient for shopping, bars and restaurants. Very clean and friendly, helpful staff. Would definitely stay again if I’m in the area.

Lovely staff - receptionist was very helpful and the staff in the restaurant were lovely on all occasions, very friendly and up for a little chat. The rooms were beautifully decorated and very clean. Bed sheets were extremely soft, I couldn’t get enough! The only down side was that there was no room service menu in the room and it was quite cold in the morning. Great little touches in the room also, selection of nice bathroom products and cookies and water were replenished daily. Location was nice, and even though there is no parking there is a very large car park a few minutes walk away that was decently priced.

Our overnight stop was lovely, food and service very good. Our room was clean and comfortable, although the bathroom was a bit small.
