      Good option, but only if you select more than "standard" room”

      As with a lot of people, I was sold on location and photos of the rooms. I booked a twin room which unfortunately was too small for my 5'10" and son's 6'6" frames. Room was clean (but I always bring along my dettol wipes for a thorough wipe-down before I put my clothes and items away). It was a good idea. Beds were very comfortable lovely plump pillows and bedding that was top quality. A bit small for us, but perfect for the average sized person. Bathroom just simply luxurious with great quality mini bottles of the standard body wash, shampoo, etc. Shower cap provided was a bonus, but could have done with 2 as we both needed one (very minor issue). Hand-wash would have been good to have as not provided, so ended up getting one from local shops). Towels absolutely wonderful and very large which suited us both perfectly. Great TV selection and service which I enjoyed watching. I would definitely recommend staying here (as I intend to in the future), but will need to fork out whatever extra price for a larger room. Also, no fridge available in the room (well, there wasn't any space for one...literally), although the staff offered to keep my cooler bag in the fridge downstairs, and request items when I needed them. Seemed like too much of a hassle, so I just left the bag there till checkout. All in all, a pleasant experience despite

      Great hotel, clean, comfy and staff were friendly. ”

      I will definitely stay here again, we were offered Sherry on arrival and the staff helped us with luggage. It would have been helpful if the location of the car park was shared prompt to arrival as having to attend the hotel to get this info meant having to sit in traffic again a around the one way system to then go to the car park and return to hotel. The rooms were clean and comfy, great value for money and right in the heart! Breakfast was lovely - the only downside was the silence in the restaurant area at breakfast, it felt like we couldn’t have a conversation as it was so quiet everyone could hear. Maybe background music would be helpful. But overall a lovely, comfy, great value for money stay! I will be back x
