I stayed with a group of friends and we had the perfect stay. Adam cooked us a lovely meal and was able to provide a gluten free option. He said you tell what you want and I'll do my best to cook it. Nothing was too much trouble. The hotel was clean modern and ideally located.

They recommended somewhere for us to eat that night and in our room, they had placed birthday banners! The hotel itself was clean, welcoming, comfortable (next time... More
