Stayed here overnight with a groupon deal, would have been disappointed if we'd had paid full price, room was clean and tidy but bathroom was really small, had one of the smaller bedrooms. Breakfast was ok, but asked for coffee and got tea, asked for white toast, got brown, overall was fine but something special.

A lovely little hotel with a superb bar and restaurant ideal for business or pleasure and a breakfast big enough to keep you going all day as it did! My stay was for business but many people seemed to be taking vacations and appeared do quite relaxed.
