Lovely hotel. Visited here with my boyfriend for 2 nights. Staff were nice and friendly. Room was gorgeous and spotless.. we didnt eat in the hotel but the food looked nice. It was close enough to the centre... probably about a 15 minute walk but we didn’t mind that. Overall a nice stay and would definitely come back.
