Stayed here at the beginning of the year. Very friendly staff and really cosy atmosphere. Really close to everything and the shared lounge and kitchen was great to have. The room was perfect for the short stay and was very comfortable.

We stayed for one night and our room was warm, clean and comfortable. The staff were helpful, showing us to our room and making sure we knew how the tv and heating worked. Great value, would definitely stay here again.
