Bit of a stab in the dark and booked online last minute after a very long, wet and tiring day.
Most pleasantly surprised as Best Westerns seem to be the poor relation compared to Marriott, Hilton or Radisson.
Friday evening when I checked in (around 6pm) so quite busy but a friendly face was there to greet me. Check in was swift and efficient and a complimentary upgrade was most appreciated.
The room was spotless and well equipped. Bathroom equally so.
After a good soak in the deep tub I ventured down to a lively bar.
Prompt and attentive service must be the mantra in this hotel, it runs very well.
Bar meal of steak and garlic bread and a couple of beers was just the ticket. Guy playing the organ and 'crooning' added to the ambience.
Bed was amazing, as were the feather pillows (I do wish all hotels had these) and after a sound nights sleep I headed to breakfast.
I have to say it was one of the best buffet breakfasts I have had anywhere, and believe me, I have had a few.
Overall, great stay, a definite recommend for anyone passing through, or even staying longer. There is a Spa too, but unfortunately I did not have the time to take advantage of this, although I'm sure it would have been equally as good as the rest of the hotel.
Many thanks to all concerned and I will most certainly be back.
