Nice Hotel, very clean rooms,good food and friendly helpful staff. When I contacted hotel they were very helpful and reserved parking as I wasn't arriving until later in evening.Although there was a function there that night it was very well controlled and no noise or disturbance. Good selection for breakfast. had a meal in the bar and it was excellent.
