Having just stayed in a Best Western for half the price (to be fair that did not include breakfast) this was a little disappointing. The room could not be faulted. Clean, comfortable and quiet. An option of a room with bath was not given but the shower was satisfactory although the combined shower/body wash was almost impossible to extract. The bathroom was very clean though with no visible mould. The room was quite warm with no air conditioning. The window opens a little though but it is on the ground floor so not everyone would be happy with that and I imagine in warm weather it would be quite uncomfortable. The little things make a difference.... only 2 teabags, no hot chocolate or biscuits, no bottled water (although a container of water was supplied on request). The dining area is an extension of reception so it is not inviting for an evening meal. As we did not eat there in the evening I can't comment on the food but the breakfast was very basic. Quite poor hot options with no fresh fruit. Warm croissants were pleasant though.
