Hotel was really nice, clean and very easy to find, close to a nice park. The best bit was being able to take our dog with us at no extra charge- hard to find dog friendly hotels so it would be good for them to shout about it!

We've been here before and it's still a very good advertisement for Thistle. We booked through the Defence Discount Website and stayed for a very good price, especially considering the high quality of the accommodation and facilities including swimming pool, sauna etc. I also noticed a sign welcoming members and veterans of the armed forces which I though was a...
