I stayed here for 5 nights on a business trip. My stay was peaceful and comfortable. A very homely place with very chilled out and friendly staff. On site secure parking was also a bonus. Thank you very much guys!

The place is great, clean, with friendly staff, good breakfast, close to all amenities and close to the places we wanted to visit. What we enjoyed the most was that it was a quiet and relaxing environment. We would recommend it to others.

Though my stay was very short, I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The service was warm, friendly and very helpful. Definitely a place I would stay in again and recommend to my friends and family. The rooms are spacious and well done up. Shops and restaurants are a short walk away.
