Very Comfortable Stay

Pros: Large comfortable room.
Cons: A new hair dryer.
Location: Just travelling through so activities were not our priority.
We only had one night here, our room was large and bright. The large TV is a welcome change to the normal tiny screens. Our room was quiet but that may have been because we were at the back of the hotel and a long way from any hotel activity. The breakfast was good both hot and cold. Free self parking a bonus.
