Great Hotel.
Very good value for money. All 3 rooms were very big. Huge bathrooms with separate bath and shower cubicle. Breakfast was very nice but not all cooked at same time despite hardly anyone there at the time. All fresh but needing more organising. Didnt like the coffee and tea being made in urns. Lots of nice sitting places around the hotel. Free secure parking. Didnt use facilities but they looked nice. Staff VERY friendly. Would return again and recommend.
