My wife and me have visited this hotel some six or seven times over past 10 years. It makes a good base for visiting local relatives and sight seeing. This is a good honest "no frills" clean, modern and comfortable hotel offering all the necessaries in decent size rooms which are regularly redecorated and with especially comfy beds. What really...

I chose this hotel as in the midst of August when the schools are closed for summer I was offered a decent rate for 5 nights. When I arrived I turned into Eden road but could not see either the Hotel or Gym as it is carefully concealed behind trees. Never-the-less the receptionist checked me in and I found my... More

This was our second visit to this hotel. The staff were very professional but friendly. They remembered us from our first visit which made the stay even better. The hotel rooms are lovely and the food in the spa cafe is tasty well presented and value for money. Will be making a return visit in the future x

Decent price for decent accommodation. Partner and I booked for 3 nights - easy to find - good location for visiting around the city and the county. Comfortable basic double room, a little too warm in hot weather which means opening windows, which means road noise but other than that great! 2 minutes from bus stop for easy access to... More

We had a good 4 days here but, on arrival, having settled into our room, we then found our card key didn't work; neither did the toilet flush easily or properly, so we had to change rooms. This was better, but still we had a problem with the card keys and had to change them twice over the 4 days.... More
