Repeat visit after a year. Still a good hotel, clean, friendly bar staff and reception. A lot of redecoration since last visit and the dining room looks great. Beds very comfortable. Also location is great can be anywhere in town centre in a few minutes. We enjoyed ourselves again.

This hotel is warm and very welcoming, the staff never forget a face. The decor is tasteful, and the rooms are comfortable and clean. The absolute favourite part of this hotel is the food, cannot fault any meal dined there. Alcohol prices are in keeping with a holiday area, entertainment provided was very good. Lifts to floors is a must...
