Very nice staff, nice and clean everywhere, big rooms, swimmingpool and danish rolls for breakfast. As norwegian we are not used to sweets for breakfast,...

This is the nicest one we've stayed in and ended up staying 2 nights on our way up the coast and another night on our way home. Very clean, wonderful location, and very friendly staff. The breakfast was good - loved the pancake machine! Wish I had one at my house!

This hotel had the friendliest and most helpful staff. The room was spacious and the shower had great water pressure and a good shower head. Breakfast offered a good variety for all. Covered parking was great during the hot days and, being in wine country, it was great that shopping and restaurants were all a short walk away. This is...

We stayed here for one night on a road trip as a family. The room was big and clean. Unlike the carpets walking up from the car park which only needed a clean and would be ok, also not a first good impression. The breakfast was ok but we didn't have the hot food as it looked a little dry...

My husband and I spent 2 nights here and we could not have been more pleased with the rooms, service and staff. Although not located in the middle of town, we were able to walk anywhere within minutes. Would not recommend staying on highway side of road.

Coventry, United Kingdom
Reviewed 29 April 2014

The rooms were adequate and clean. The beds were comfortable. We had an upstairs room which was fine. The main hotel block was in another building and appeared more modern. Breakfast was very good. The waffle maker was a bit of a puzzle!! There were plenty of places nearby to eat in the evening.
