We really enjoyed our stay. Great service, with tasty vegetarian options in the bistro and a very peaceful night's sleep. The breakfast buffet included superb granola and unexpected items like roasted hazelnuts. We'll be staying again for sure.

From the moment we went in the door we knew that we had arrived at a lovely hotel, the welcoming staff, excellent room, good breakfast, nearby car park, all right in the center of a lovely town with plenty music and songs to pass away a few winter days and nights. We will be back to sample the other seasons...

Stayed here with friends last year. Fantastic hotel perhaps sometimes overlooked in favour of the bigger hotels in the town but this place is a little gem. Helpful friendly staff. The place is spotless with really nice rooms and lovely food. What more do you want. Would definitely stay again and have already recommended the place to friends.
