This hotel exceeded my expectations. The room was so clean, bright and most of all-comfortable. The reception staff were very welcoming. Breakfast was so nice, although there was no option to self serve for the likes of water/orange juice/tea or pastries etc and only one member of staff on who seemed busy.

The staff were so accommodating and couldn't have done it more for us. The rooms definitely need updating and bathroom quite scruffy. Found some items under the bed which indicates the room wasn't cleaned to high standard.
