Staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, room was large and bed was comfortable. Everything was spotlessly clean. We loved it here and would be back in a heart beat, brilliant views of the city through the huge windows.

Swimming pool is nice and big, although there...

We arrived with my parents and the service we got was really good during our whole stay. After two weeks we came back and stayed another two nights. Nice breakfast. Booked a superior room which is overlooking the motor way but it was not noisy.
