Although the room was dated, this place offers great value for money! The management was outstanding, with great recommendations for activities and restaurants. Plenty of parking. It is fairly close to most amenities and 10 minute walk to Eat Street.

We stayed here for 4 nights on a recent holiday. Were given a room right at the front and thought the road noise might be an issue, but it wasn't - barely noticed it.

Stayed two nights in a two bedroom spa apartment. The layout was a surprise with the second bedroom only accessible via the first bedroom, which may not suit everyone. Two bathrooms was a bonus. Very warm thanks to the thermal heating. Friendly and helpful manager. Location close to town with a supermarket, butcher, bottle store and food outlets virtually on...

Great place to stay. Staff were very helpful, and the family room we had was clean and tidy. Good facilities nearby, plenty of food options. The staff recommended a local cultural experience, which was wonderful. The laundry facilities were much needed, as we'd been traveling for a week. Highly recommend!

The room was fine. Fairly basic, but with good wifi and a TV. The bathroom was strange. It looked like a disabled toilet cubicle. A big square space, made of plastic that was waterproof. Staff very very friendly and helpful, and a ten minute walk into town, and across from a large supermarket.
