Stayed here recently overnight on a business trip.
The welcome was warm and friendly.
The hotel was in a quiet position.
The rooms were massive with a lovely comfortable bed.
The hotel was very clean
The window was open in my room which meant it was cold
The sheet kept coming off the bed
The extractor fan in the bathroom went on for a good 20 minutes after the light was switched off which made it difficult to sleep
The breakfast was laid out the night before in a tiny nook by the front door - food security was a concern as anyone could have tampered with it before I ate it which I don't like. We bypassed breakfast and ate elsewhere
The bathroom smelt strongly of cleaning chemicals but not in a pleasant way
Overall it was a good honest hotel which presented value for money for a business stay but don't expect it to light your fire.
