Helpful staff, convenient dining room with good, hot food. Generous size room and bathroom. Only thing is the mattresses need to be replaced. I could feel a spring coil or two. My travelling companion found navigating the large rise in the steps to the front door were a challenge. The elevator is very small but fast.

Room was clean and had all the facilities you would expect from a three star hotel. Staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was included in the room rate which made the overall cost good value. Breakfast was a buffet style with plenty available.

The hotel is in a great location! Staff at reception were friendly and helpful! Catering staff in the morning not so friendly. The room was spacious and the bathroom was exceptional. Definitely would stay again!

The hotel works, has friendly staff and reasonably furnished rooms. Th breakfast is acceptable but how anyone can describe the dinner baffles me. Probably the most boring buffet I have ever experienced. What was there required little culinary skill. Didn't give a lot of confidence that we faced a door kept open by an over flowing bin.
