What a lovely change to find a hotel which has all the basics right.
The young lady on reception, Daria, is a role model of what a hotel receptionist should be. Pleasant greeting, a smile, excellent English, very efficient and able to give me all the hotel information without sounding like a robot.
Really nice room, I did book a superior but I imagine the standard ones would be fine. Very clean and comfortable, a couple more power points would be useful but hardly an issue. Good bathroom. Good fast, free, wi fi!
Dinner was excellent as was the service which came with it, and reasonably priced. Good wine list, again reasonably priced. Excellent breakfast, again with good service. Good efficient check out with another very friendly lady.
The place itself has a nice comfortable feel to it, not some modern plastic creation. Oh it could use a lick of paint in a few places but hardly an issue. Just one small gripe - management please note - breakfast starting at 7-15 is a little bit too late for business travellers, made it all a bit rushed. This needs to come forward to 7. Otherwise, no complaints at all.
I'll definitely be staying here again whenever I'm in the area
