Could not find fault with our stay for four days. Newly decorated rooms, spotlessly clean. Staff very friendly and helpful. No request was too much trouble. A big plus was that we were able to take our small dog with us as this is a 'dog friendly' hotel. Hotel is very central. Excellent full breakfast. Can thoroughly recommend this hotel...
