My luggage was heavy so staying next to the train station was important. And this hotel is nearly in the station. I walked in without reservation and got a very good rate 40 pounds including breakfast. Room is OK if you want it just for sleep.

Having looked at other reviews I was a little apprehensive about booking into this hotel but I wanted somewhere close to the station. When I entered the hotel I was greeted by a smell of fresh flowers and a lovely lady who showed me the types of rooms available to see which would be suitable for me. The room I... More
