Spent one night here. Very comfortable and a decent breakfast. Just a short walk to the railway station. Staff really helpful. There's a gym and pool onsite, not that I found the time to use them. Great for business traveller.

lovely room. I ahd difficulty climbing stairs. As there were building alterations, the restaurant was temporarily upstairs and the reception and coffee shop staff arranged for me to have my Breakfast in the coffee shop downstairs. I was very well taken care of.
