Your feedback is much appreciated, I am glad you had such a pleasant stay with us over the bank holiday weekend. I am sorry that noisy floorboards disturbed your sleep, as we continue working in the bedrooms these will be rectified wherever possible. Thank you again and we look forward to welcoming you back to the hotel in the future. More

Glad you had a nice stay with us and have taken the time to leave some feedback, sorry the noise disturbed you a little as the hotel is situated opposite the main railway station so the road can sometimes be very heavily used. More
