A really lovely hotel. At first glance from the outside it looks small and not very inviting. Actually its much bigger than it looks and is very modern and spacious. Plenty of free on-site parking next to the entrance. The receptionist was helpful, polite. The bar area was closed when we arrived but looked really 'different' and inviting - the...

Was a little dubious of booking a hotel that wasn't in a well know chain that I was used too, but I was not disappointed! Have to say this was the best nights sleep I have ever had in a hotel! Stayed in the deluxe double room 210 and it was very nice, clean and roomy. Staff were very nice...

If you think friendly customer service, cleanliness, a comfy night sleep and peace and quiet is more important than initial appearance and plush and up-to-date decoration then this place is for you. It is inexpensive and conveniently located. I'd stay here again.

We wanted a hotel near to the station and also the venue for a friend's birthday, which this hotel delivered. It was also conveniently placed for chip shops on the way back!

When we got to the room it was apparent that there may have been a mix up as some belongings were still in there....
