Check in is not until 3 pm but we were able to leave our bags at the hotel and their staff parked the car in their car park.
The hotel is very well situated in a main street with several restaurants in the same street.
Reception answered my emails very promptly and helpfully.
The room was fine, as others have mentioned a little dated but no complaints.
Breakfast consisted of a choice of cereal, fruit, juices etc and a cooked breakfast which was of reasonable portion if a little greasy.
