It's always nice to be greeted with a smile and conversation when you arrive at a hotel. The staff here were unbelievably pleasant and caring, opening doors and saying hello. On the first morning, every single member if staff I saw greeted me with 'good morning' which really did make me feel a valued customer.
The rooms were basic and a little old fashioned but were clean and tidy. The bathroom however was modern and well designed.
The food and breakfast was, albeit not in massive portions, very nice.
Overall, a nice hotel that I would be happy to stay in again.
