Ideal if you are arriving by public transport but inconvenient if travelling by car as car park is extremely small and difficult to get to, this was our third time for a party nigh,t the band and disco were good and the meal although small was good quality and tasty.IMO there were far too many people crammed into the function room which was never the case previously which made moving within the room a little difficult.
The room we were given was small but very clean, modern and comfortable.
The breakfast was excellent as usual if not a little chaotic.
Overall this is a nice hotel in a good location right in the centre of town a short walking distance to bus and rail routes and right next to many bars and restaurants.
