I really apologise for not knowing the answers to your questions However, the hotel seemed to me small, and a family with such size (5 people most are adults), I would rather chose a bigger hotel Thank you

Are there tea and coffee making facilities in the bedrooms?
Hi Linda, Yes, a kettle and cups and sachets of tea, coffee, long-life milk (and sometimes hot chocolate!) are supplied. They also gave us a bottle of water each day. Cheers, Brian

Good Afternoon, Thank you for your query. Please can you confirm what dates you would like to stay with us so that I may check availability and offer rates for one double room and one family room. We are approximately 10 - 15 minutes walk from the town centre. I hope this has been helpful, if you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact us. Kind Regards, Adele

"Though our rooms were at the back of the Hotel there was some passing street noise."
"Our room, no2. Was warm and quiet."
"Rooms at rear more likely to be quieter as hotel is on main road."
"The hotel is on a busy road, so maybe at the front it could be a little noise?"
"If you want a quiet room, ask for one at the back of the hotel"
