A brilliant room with lots of quirky features, we also struck lucky and got a corner room which had a wonderfully large balcony. Clean, comfortable, good size room, helpful staff and not too far out of town.

We had a deluxe studio twin, with two queen size beds in separate areas. Very spacious, with sweeping views and a balcony, on 17 th floor. Very clean, very comfortable, with great beds. Thoroughly enjoyed it, and would stay again.
