Well located off the High Street, and with very welcoming and friendly staff, this is a very comfortable and convenient hotel. Could be a little quieter as the rooms are off the main thoroughfare between Cafe Rouge and the Car Park, but generally after 11:00 it's OK.

Wasn't sure what to expect but was delighted! Rooms were spotless. Had great facilities. Was surprisingly quiet considering we backed onto the car park. Breakfast was lovely. Very friendly and helpful chef making cooked breakfasts. Very pleased and would definitely return.

Because of its location and design I would agree with previous reviews that the hotel lacks charm and soul. However, we just needed a bed for the night. This I thought was good and the room clean with decent toiletries. The shower was nice and hot and the room even had an air con unit which was a god send... More
