Me and my partner stayed here for one night after attending a wedding at the hotel. It was very clean and all the staff were friendly and helpful, especially when our bath wouldn't drain ( maintenance arrived within 2mins of this being reported. The breakfast was lovely with a selection of hot and cold. I would happily stay here again...
