Lovely facility, centrally located. Their covid restrictions are clearly displayed and the staff are more than aware of their requirements in implementing them. Dining room service, dinner and breakfast, very efficient. Staff very attentive.

Would stay here again
The hotel was very clean. It was an older style hotel.. Our room was out the back which meant we had no view. Staff were lovely and friendly. We didn't eat there but the menu seem to have a great variety.
