    Really clean and new facilities all around. The check-in was a bit bumpy, as my reservation was not easy to find evidently, which was a bit of a bad fiery impression, but the room and other amenities made up for it in the end.

  • 8.0.Very good

    We stayed for 6 nights and on our recommendation our friends stayed for 5. yet they received a special welcome pack on arrival. In response to our enquiry the Hotel stated that welcome packs were randomly provided! Very unusual practice! However, staff provided excellent service especially Debbie and Glenn and Jo. We will return!
