The A/C unit was noisy and kept kicking in and shutting off, however the hotel and staff were excellent. Didn't have the greatest nights sleep due to the A/C unit, one minute was hot then cold and was very noisy, did switch ot off several times but kept switching back on.

Very comfortable abandoned spacious room, and bed.Five pounds taxi ride from the main train statupion. Well worth the weekend price. Very helpful and friendly staff. I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to visitors. Good separate restayurant for food all day.

A12 was A1 for us, 3 nights here for Birthday break. Easy to find, close to all sorts of attractions etc Loads of...
