Friendly staff, efficient and helpful. Rooms are comfortable and clean. Breakfast starts early which is a real advantage and hotel is geared for "pack and go breakfast". Plenty of parking space (although for charge).

There was a barrier to the hotel car park but it did raise and there were no other height restrictions that I came across.
