Wonderful - 4.5 out of 5

Liked: Our room was so spacious and the beds were great! The small fan in the room was plenty to keep it from getting too warm at night. Dinner and breakfast were a big plus. Parking was super convenient for unloading (once we found out where parking actually was). Both evening and morning staff were very friendly and attentive.

Good food and location but...

Liked: Good location.
Disliked: The kitchen extractor fan was next to our room and was extremely noisy. We also felt the soundproofing on the rooms was poor as we could hear the person next door talking and then snoring!

Nice staff. Clean room. Good...

Liked: Staff were friendly and helpful. Food good.
Disliked: I?d asked for a single room. It was dark and cold although the temperature outside was very warm and sunny. It was situated right beside the courtyard with a table of loud people drinking (both nights) The tv in the bedroom was only able to get a few channels. The shower was difficult to operate and the handle came away in my hand. I paid for anything I ordered at the time but on departure was charged for someone else?s bar bill. I explained how it couldn?t have been mine and I think I convinced the member of staff at reception but since it was only just over 8 I paid it so I could leave.
