Stayed overnight on a business trip. Hotel is clean and well located just off the main ring road.

I stayed here for one night on a business trip, the room appears to have been modernised perhaps in the last 12 months, it was very nice, a little on the small side but for one night it was certainly adequate. Had breakfast in hotel, food was decent as was the service. I managed to get a bit of a... More

We've stayed here a few times now when we come and visit family and its ok but the rooms really need updating although bathrooms are lovely. Breakfast is great and they have at last got rid of the miserable waitress or perhaps we just got lucky and it was her weekend off!!

Rooms are excellent, staff friendly. Restaurant is trying to be too high class, need a simpler menu in addition to gourmet dining. Hotel is NOT wheelchair friendly, step to get in, and stairs to the rooms (this time did not need wheelchair access, If I had would have had to book elsewhere)
