Fabulous hotel, great location
The bar area and restaurant are beautifully decorated and seemed to be very popular so we were glad we booked. The decor in our room was lovely too, the room was spotlessly clean and comfortable, the hotel staff were friendly and helpful. Parking was really convenient in the car park just around the corner at a discounted rate. We stayed 2 nights and breakfast was first class, we also had an evening meal which was really good too. We will definitely stay here again!
