    • The eating area was clean and the parking at Car Park 12 was good. The hotel was lovely, clean, modern and the staff were friendly and helpful, reception was fine, on getting up to the room, was amply big and well presented. Breakfast was very nice.

      Not great value for money oveRall and the TV only had very limited channels very basic facilities at an inflated price. Restaurant food was awful.

    • Location and very good staff, taxi rank approx 50mtrs from front doors, t stay long enough to form an oveRall opinion. Internet is fast and free, the restaurant too is spacious.

      Poor value for money and room was tiny. Drinks from the bar were expensive and pillows were too hard. The food arrived was average and grossly overpriced.
