Surprisingly comfortable

I stayed on business and was attending a meeting early morning in the hotel. The bedrooms were comfortable, the bathroom was designed for a below average sized person with use of the WC only possible if I was prepared to compromise comfort! The meeting facilities were good if a little distant from the entrance to the hotel. Good food and the breakfast was first class, fast and high quality ingredients.

Family Wedding

A lovely hotel - very friendly staff and the rooms were lovely. Spotlessly clean with everything we needed for a two night stay. A bonus to have an iron and ironing board (though we didn't use it!) The breakfast was excellent. Bar prices extortionate, however.

Attending a Wedding

.I did not realize that Breakfast was not included. Drinks and meals very expensive. In the restraurant there was a strong smell of gas, made my friend feel bad, we did complain about it. Otherwise, the room was very comfortable.
