I booked a 1 night stay here during half term for 2 adults and a 17 year old for £68. Free parking, 5 minute walk to town and breakfast included are the positives. Could do with a bell on reception as we waited quite a while for someone to check us in. Could also do with a menu for breakfast, you go and queue but don’t know what you can choose from. I would stay here again.

This stay for us was all about the location and being able to easily walk into the city centre, which it 100% ticked the box. We had a great stay apart from the double bed was to us a small double bed and the breakfast wasn't that organised/smooth, even allowing for Covid. Re Covid, the hotel was very safe...
