The check in was very quick with a lovely friendly welcome. Our room was lovely we booked a superior double. It had everything you could want in it. A couple... More

The man who greeted us said one room was already prepared so we went up and left our bags there, shortly afterwards another member of staff came to make sure the heating was on. The room was...

Really lovely little gem of a hotel, with a contemporary feel, very clean and organised. Lovely breakfast and ideal location with just a short walk to the town centre amenities. Parking outside with a free pass until the following day, highly recommended!
