My friend and I had stayed at this hotel on a weekend. The room was spacious and bed was comfortable. Staff are very helpful and friendly. Unfortunately we didn't manage to make the breakfast. Only criticism was the bathroom. The toilet had not been cleaned probably the shower was broken.

As we arrived we were greeted by a super friendly receptionist, checking was quick and easy. The room was big and spacious, the bed was super comfy, my only bug bear was the bathroom, difficult to use the toilet, as it sits right infront of the shower, The view from the room, looked out onto the back garden, which gave...
