We just had a one night stay - arrived late, left early, but would recommend this hotel. We were too late for bar food, but were offered sandwiches which were delicious. The room was clean, maybe a little too warm, but everything in order. Breakfast was good. The staff were very courteous and helpful, good bunch of employees.
