We stayed for two nights and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. Our room was a junior suite on the first floor with a large, comfy bed, nice linen, super bathroom and plenty of space. Lovely thick curtains to block out the light, very recently decorated, clean and fresh, large TV and two easy chairs - ideal for a relaxing break. Okay, as someone else commented, the new carpet could do with being stretched but that is really nitt-picking.
Dinner was very good. The homemade chicken liver parfait was among the best I've tasted. Like another reviewer I ordered prawn fajitas. Large prawns, lots of onion and peppers, served on a sizzler but not at all greasy. I also hate salsa but told the waitress so it wasn't an issue. When we want a gourmet meal, we choose an appropriate establishment. This hotel offers well prepared, tasty food at very reasonable prices.
Breakfast was excellent, try the Eggs Benedict.
The staff were unfailingly cheerful and helpful, we could not find fault. I watched one staff member dealing with a very delicate situation with great skill and tact.
The building is obviously in the middle of a refurbishment programme but if this is continued to the current standard then they will end up with an excellent establishment.
We will certainly visit again.
