Room was a great size and had gorgeous windows that looked out the grassed area. Bar is great, services a great range of cocktails - gets very busy on the weekend, so book a table/go down early. Only set back is limited parking.

2 night stay. First night ate in restaurant where food was good & staff very pleasant. We were given an upgrade from loft room to queen room which was a bonus. Hotel in walking distance to all amenities in town.
