The hotel isn't near a train station or easily accessible by local transport so I got a taxi there (I don't drive).
The hotel is quite pleasant, there is a restaurant which I wasn't told was open when I checked in, and an area to sit near the bar. I felt when I checked it I wasn't really told that much about my stay for example when breakfast was, if I could order food etc. Just basic things.
Room was comfortable, warm, massive TV. Internet available but it is so expensive. There's tea and coffee making facilities, an iron, hairdryer, trouser press and enough coat hangers.
I thought it was a comfortable stay over all.
