    Room was perfect, ticked all the boxes. One night stay with every convenience one could wish for including an enormous king size bedroom. Receptionists very helpful when it came to check-in details and offering discount vouchers for local Q park. Would highly recommend.

    Is the hotel within easy walking distance from the train station with luggage, or is it feasible to get there by taxi i.e will the taxi driver simply laugh at me if I ask him to drive me there because it's too short a distance...

    Good evening, The hotel is about a 5-7 minute walk from the train station. Lots of people get taxis to and from the train station especially with luggage, so don't worry! We look forward to welcoming you! Amber
