We've loved the stay! We checked in and payed upfront for 3pm check out. We have been so comfortable and relaxed, we ended up playing hooky and staying for another 2 nights (shhh) but when we wanted to stay a THIRD night, there was no one able to accommodate us. We spoke to a gentleman ( who was very polite)... More

Service was good. Lack of fresh air in the room was a problem. The air was too dry. not all the jets worked to capacity in the spa, Swimming pool ok, but too small. Staff was very friendly, the location for our purposes was excellent and very convenient to things the city had to offer.

Overall, our impression was good. The hotel is a bit dated, but they are working on updating. The room kind of had a smell to it that wasn't altogether pleasant. The room was large enough, but didn't provide a sitting area. It wasn't quite as close to downtown bars and restaurants as reviews led us to believe, but was only... More

Staff are very friendly and beds extremely comfortable. Couple this with a breakfast of waffles, eggs, sausage, toast, cereal etc. and you really couldn't want more. Tip: There isn't a restaurant within walking distance for dinner.

The hotel was clean, the service was excellent. The place was close to my work destination so it was easy to get there in the morning and back at night. Beds are comfortable and they offer a microwave and fridge which is greatly appreciated on long business stays. I would stay again.

Only used as a base as was visiting family. Didn't use any of the facilities. Rooms were decent size and beds were comfortable., and clean. Very welcoming on arrival. Had a car so managed to get out each day and took a walk on a couple of the nights we were there. Beautiful surroundings.

Standard hotel with a reasonable cost. Rooms were a good size and clean. Breakfast was supplied each morning and was quite good. Pool was available, clean and towels were provided. All the staff were friendly and helpful. Good value for your money.
