Location, service and overall experience superb
Friendly staff, always available to help and always with a smile. Genuine people. I thought there was some sort of error when they said “free dinner” (as well as free breakfast and free tea and cake) but it wasn’t.

Nice stay, nice place
Really friendly front-desk staff, nice bar, comfortable bed, delicious breakfast. I wish the shower tiles weren't so slippery and free parking would be nice, but otherwise a great night in a nice hotel.
