Loved the hotel and friendly staff. The location is so close to the town centre and it was short walk to the cathedral and castle. The room was spacious and very clean

Brilliant stay !

Everything was perfect, from the room to the staff to the food to the facilities ! The bed was super comfy and the room really spacious. The staff were great, very friendly and very helpful. We had dinner in the restaurant as well as breakfast the next day. Food was lovely and pricing was very reasonable. The leisure centre had great facilities, just what was needed to fix the jet lag. Would definitely stay again !
