3 generations of the family spent a long weekend. The hotel & staff were brilliant. Each room is slightly different but very comfortable. We are already planning our next trip. It made a great weekend even better.

The breakfast was excellent and well presented and their... More

Good location in the tourist area of the town. Very clean and lovely staff. Contemporary style throughout. Room a bit compact but absolutely fine for a 2 night stay. Great shower and good choice of breakfast. Would stay again.
