Staff were very efficient and friendly, nice decor, breakfast got a bit dehydrated in the hot cabinet, very comfy bed, great central location, swimming pool ok if a little small, charging for the car park £2 a day a bit cheeky (I don't remember this before).

Great value overnight stay - room was smallish but clean and quiet. Food in the restaurant was really super quality. Breakfast was delicious too and the staff are lovely, helpful and friendly. Unfortunately swimming pool is out of action but we were offered the use of a pool at another hotel.
