We booked this hotel quite by chance, using an on-line agency.
We received a very friendly welcome. Our room seemed small - but we had the most wonderfully comfortable 6 ft bed! The weater was cold and gloomy but the hotel was warm. The room and bathroom were spotless. A small shelf in the bathroom would be useful!
We enjoyed our dinner, good menu and wine choices with friendly efficient service.
I don't usually like self-service breakfasts but this one was exceptionally good.
We will certainly stay again.
