Revisited this hotel and again found the staff are what makes this a wonderful hotel. From the front desk staff to the staff in the restaurant. Food is excellent as is location. We had a great night rate which included dinner and bed and breakfast. Rooms are a little dated.

The hotel was all we could need. It is easily walkable from train station in a few minutes. The Quay is a day's worth of adventures. This is to thank Susie, who helped my cousin bunch and I to find rail information and all travel tips we needed. She may be one of the night staff, who must have spent... More
