    I liked the interior and exterior of the hotel. The rooms were very nice and clean

    There was noise form the disco on the first nigth that we were not warned aobut. We coudl hear toilets flusing and doors closing in our rooms and were shocked at this. We thought it would be sound proof. There was no hot water for msot of our stay!!The hotel is very expensive for what you get.

    It was a nice quiet hotel whose staff were mainly friendly and quite helpful.

    It was strange that the disabled rooms were on the second floor. Somewhat confusing how they would be evacuated in a fire when use of the lift would not be allowed. The reception staff seemingly had to multi-task at other jobs meaning you had to go to the bar/restaurant to locate them.

    Fabulous

    The fact that they served meals as no one else in town did. Very appealing lobby and entrance. Good staff.

    No pelmets on the curtains meant the sun still snuck in. A queen size bed is preferable to the double.

    Very Good hotel. Good facilities. Staff friendly. Manager very nice.

    No parking. Have a free car park about 5 mins walk from hotel. Only room for 3 cars on street outside hotel. Our car got badly damaged outside hotel. Not a place to stay if your car is important to you. Other than that very good hotel.
