Great location. Rooms facing main road are very noisy. Reception staff very friendly and professional. The leisure facilities were small but clean . Rooms are reasonable standard .All in all I had a pleasant stay but feel a bit over priced.

Pity about the refurbishment activities but hopefully when complete it will lead to a brighter future for guests. Central location was a bonus as was the friendly professionalism of all the staff who could not have been more helpful.
