We planned to be here for two nights on business, but it turned out to be three because of a storm bringing the rail network to a halt, as it does these days. So I can say that the shower in my 3rd floor room is better than the shower in the 1st floor room! Joking aside, excellent rooms, complete...

The room itself was small but adequate and the beds really comfy. It was an accessible room so the bathroom was a wet room, i personally prefer a...

Arrived here on Sunday and was greeted by very friendly reception staff. Our room was 527 and we was given a lovely surprise for my girlfriend's birthday two bottles of prosecco and 4 free drink vouchers. The room was very comfy and modern not massive but big enough. The shower was a good size and really warm. Breakfast was really...
