As I said in the title, it is the staff at this hotel that make it so special. From the moment I rang them to book there was a friendliness and 'nothing is too much trouble' attitude. Our 2 rooms were outstanding (160 & 161). I believe they are new additions to the hotel in the last year. I wish...

Recently spent one night in this lovely hotel. I really enjoyed the lovely, friendly check in and immediately loved the christmas ambience. I felt christmas started for me in that lobby a few days ago. Room was spotlessly clean and stocked with lovely products. Slept soundly despite my worries about the hotel's central location. Breakfast was good but seating area...
