The staff were great, location was brilliant, room was spacious. My only criticism was not enough sugar in the room, and house keeping were very slow at bringing us some. Not really a big issue. Would definitely stay again.

Staff were always very friendly. Room was large and clean. The property is very central and easy to get too and from places. Wifi did not work for us though and we asked twice before giving up.
