All the staff were very pleasant and helped in any... More

Very good Hotel... Good value for money.... Close to Town centre, but not to close....The staff were very friendly, and breakfast very good.....Beds in the rooms were very comfy, and clean, could do with upgrading....They have a swimming pool, not big, but good enough for a chill out....also a sauna...The bar is down stairs, but the lift takes you down...

I do apologise for the television and it was repaired during your stay as a previous guest had changed the settings for a games console, the member of staff did actual say to turn the TV off and follow...
