We enjoyed the comfy room which was quiet - back from the road - and well supplied. We had dinner in the restaurant and were well looked after even though there were two tour buses in house. Meals were more than adequate and delicious. Breakfast a large range of selections and prices reasonable. All staff were very courteous (as expected but not always received). Wished we could have stayed longer. Not muchgh we didn't like!

Would have liked more vanity space in the bathroom as this was quite limited. Otherwise this is a lovely hotel in a good location.
