We arrived tired, cold and hungry at 7.30pm on the Saturday night. We were welcomed by a very friendly, professional receptionist. She was very informative about the hotel and even showed us where breakfast would be served the following morning.
Our room was coolish on arrival but quickly warmed up when we turned the heater on. The room was generously sized and the spare bed was already made up ( there was 3 of us staying.)
Both the shower room and bedroom were spotlessly clean.
Soap, tissues, hair/shower gel and huge, fluffy towels were in the shower room.
The bedroom had clothes storage, shelving, mirror, hairdryer, desk, tea/coffee and television.
The beds were extremely comfortable and we slept very well.
The following morning we went for breakfast. This was plentiful. It was self service but ladies were on hand to help out. There was plenty of choice of both hot and cold food and drinks.
The daily/Sunday paper which are also available are a thoughtful extra. ( no charge for these.)
All members of the HIE team we came across were very helpful and obliging .
