Lovely time
Gorgeous room, lovely decor, wonderful deep bath and helpful folk on reception. Minutes away from all the fun stuff. Some noise from the road outside but minimal. Room is beautiful but has some signs of wear round the edges but who cares, it was comfy and gorgeous.

8/10 Very good

The room was amazing, really romantic for our first wedding anniversary, and the decor throughout was great. My only gripe was there wasn't a lot of horizontal space and my wife had to sit on the floor to do her hair and makeup as that was the only spot near a plug socket and in front of a mirror however we would both definitely stay again
