We stayed in a standard room which was very clean, however a little small, but for a night away from home it was enough. The staff were welcoming and friendly. We look forward coming back and staying in a king room for our next weekend without children :)

The room was quite small, but it was immaculate and had easy access to powerpoints for laptop etc, lights that ran from USB chargers ,so could easily plug in my phone. Would have liked wine glasses in the room, along with the coffee mugs and tumblers, but all in all a good stay.
