It is disappointing that you have chosen to remain Anonymous and given no indication why you have scored your stay so low. This gives us no opportunity to improve the hotel.

Didn’t like the request to present photo ID’s for both people booked in. Otherwise very clean rooms nicely presented and comfortable bed.

Thank you for your review Anon. Lovely to see that you enjoyed your stay with us. We do have to ask for ID for each person staying due to being located next to a League's Club so each member does need to be registered for legal reasons. We hope to be able to welcome you back again soon.

Nothing to dislike. Rooms extremely comfortable, quiet, light, warm and spacious. A really lovely place to stay.

Didn’t like that there was a bit of noise at night from other guests (obviously not the hotels fault) but walls quite thin. Also can hear above when they use the shower or bathroom. Loved the bay windows they’re a great feature. Parking was also safe and always available for free which was one of our main reasons choosing here
