Service and cleanliness is excellent. Room is a great size and the new bathroom a delight but there are some things that would make the overall stay excellent - the desk area is way too high for the seating provided - just drop it down to 900 and it would be great; and the cups/mugs are not even cup size...

We only stayed overnight but found the hotel clean, quiet and the staff friendly and helpful. The rooms were spacious and the buffet breakfast excellent. All in all worth a stay if in the region or passing through.

This is my new favourite hotel. My room (115) was luxurious, modern and clean with a pretty garden/fern view at the back and a very comfortable bed.

The staff couldn't have been friendlier, from the receptionist who chatted to me...
