This is my new favourite hotel. My room (115) was luxurious, modern and clean with a pretty garden/fern view at the back and a very comfortable bed. The reverse-cycle aircon kept me perfectly comfortable during two very cool nights, and I heard no traffic noise at all. The staff couldn't have been friendlier, from the receptionist who chatted to me each time I had to wait for pick-up to the chef in the breakfast restaurant who made a point of instigating a brief conversation with each patron who was eating alone - fabulous for alleviating that on-the-road loneliness. Real country hospitality, great food at breakfast - plenty of hot and cold food for vegetarians as well as lashing of bacon and eggs, and they cater to gluten and lactose intolerance as well. The one slight problem I had with my room was handled quickly and professionally, with a sincere apology. Can't fault these guys.
Lunch and dinner can be easily sourced at the Bradford Hotel two minutes walk away, which served delicious meals with giant-sized helpings and again, lots of options for vegetarians.
