Lovely view, clean and comfortable. Hamish recommended an Indian restaurant (incredible India) and it was divine. Had vegan options that were some of the best I have tasted

Great Spot, Handy Location
Hotel really good value. It has a cafe attached which was beneficial. A gym would be nice, but coped without for a few days. Road noise always a pain if you at front. Looked double glazed but not sure it worked. Staff friendly. Rooms clean and comfortable. Would definitely stay there again.
