Good sized room with every convenience. Hot weather during my stay but a fan was provided and sheets available to use on the bed instead of duvet. Nice touch ! Clean and very comfortable. Parking available close by.

This was booked for us back in December as part of an anniversary present from my in-laws. We had a family day at the zoo then a meal then headed to the hotel at about 9pm. When we got there, the hotel car park was a building site so we had to park round the other side of the restaurant.... More
