This hotel is small but perfect. The staff are very welcoming and provide fantastic service overall. The car park is across the street through electronic gates. If you pull up outside the hotel the reception staff pop out and let you in. It is only £14 for the day which we didn't think was too bad. It is under a 10 minute walk in to town/ 5 minutes to the train station.
The reception/bar area is lovely and had some beautiful christmas decorations up whilst we were there. The staff are very attentive and the attention to detail with the service was brilliant.
The room was lovely with the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. The bathroom was possibly the smallest I have ever seen but had everything you would need in it. We didn't eat dinner at the hotel but wished we had - the menu and atmosphere in the restaurant looked fantastic with a brilliant live band.
I have one fault with this hotel: breakfast. The two female staff serving breakfast hid in the kitchen whilst there were four irate tables of customers waiting well over an hour to receive their food. I believe there was only one chef on that morning but I am sure 8 customers in total for breakfast shouldn't take over an hour to serve. Regardless - the behaviour of the serving staff was an embarrassment to this lovely hotel. This was in complete contrast to the service within the rest of the hotel and such a shame. They avoided any eye contact when they did manage to venture out of the kitchen - and laughed at our complaint after having waited an hour and a half for a sausage sandwich. Luckily the reception staff acknowledged the problem and gave us our breakfast for free. Otherwise a faultless hotel that we would recommend to anyone.
