Good central location and very near to transport links. Staff were very welcoming and accomodating. While it was nominally a daytime family gathering, a few of us stayed the night before. Comfortable, spacious bedroom. Food was plentiful and hearty at mealtimes and the organisation for our celebration event was professional and the event ran very smoothly. I felt they were... More

I like the location of the hotel its central and just over the road from the train station. Check in is quick and efficient. The staff are very friendly. My room was clean, quiet and comfortable. My only negative comment is the decor is a little dated.

Stayed one night on business, location is literally 15 seconds from train station. Staff were very helpful and always greeted me with a smile. Wifi in room was fine although you do have to register but that is then valid for 6 months. Breakfast was good, lots of choice and is cooked to order. Room was comfortable, only criticism was...
