Down side is it has traffic noise which took some getting used to but it is silent between 10 and 7. I loved getting up each morning and walking The Strand. Would... More

From the moment we arrived it was perfect. Friendly front of house. Room more than adequate, position perfect. Lovely view of the waterfront and all the buzz. Access from the car park to your room via the lift is a plus.

Walking distance to many great eating spots, and into town if you are up for a slightly longer walk. We got around ok without a car. Parking... More
