The hotel in general was great clean and well maintained. If anything I would change it would be the knock and enter policy of the staff more time needs to be allowed between knock and opening of the door to give guests chance to answer.Could be embarrassing.

Perfect for situation as walked across road to the church where we were guests for a wedding. Carpark was beside and we could see it parked safely thru the night. They didnt have room as a twin when we booked in and after talking to receptionist she fixed this as was an oversight. Terrific beds, soft and great pillows. A lot of hotels have brick's to sleep on and as I'm older i really like soft and comfortable. All staff were friendly and helpful. Really lovely.
