You cant find any fault everything is so perfect. Best value for money. Only request to them is to keep 2-3 plates, whisky glasses, spoons and fork in room. We can get them from the Restaurent but it will save time if it is in room.

The location of this hotel serves its purpose for events taking place at Grand West Casino and Resort,. The rooms are fairly basic but very well looked after especially after the recent renovations. The breakfast is quite pricey and the accommodation is also a bit over priced for the venue. Staff are very friendly and always eager to assist.

A smallish hotel with a big heart! It starts with an efficient online booking system and continues with a friendly reception and well laid out, clean rooms. The rooms are a little smaller than some but are well laid out and cleverly furnished. I find the pricing something "between" a small guest house and the larger hotels and can perhaps...
