THIS PLACE WAS AWESOME

Pros: Absolutely everything!
Cons: Nothing at all.
Location: Great walking distance to the town centre and restaurants etc.
I actually went out of my way to write feedback for this hotel as I was so impressed. We had come down for a big car event and not only was this hotel tidy, affordable and in a great location, the staff were so patient putting up with our cars and our large group of people and went beyond the call of duty for us. This is a 1 night a year event for us and we know we can be an inconvenience at times. I will happily stay here every year from now on! We had a group of friends in a nearby hotel who had an awful experience and it made us even more grateful of the excellent service we received. Thank you so much to the owners, we will see you next year!
