10/10 Exceptional

We were only there for one night but we loved it and look forward to going again. The staff were very friendly. The room was clean and very fresh smelling which is what one wants after a long drive. It had all the amenities that we needed and even chocolates to go with our coffee and biscuits. It felt very welcoming and restful. The continental breakfast the next morning was varied and plentiful.

We liked the room and the convenience of the location. But the shower in the bathroom could have done with a good clean around the door and walls
