    The room was very comfortable, the location of the hotel was very good. Also th staff were friendly

    The layout of the room put the toilet separate from the bathroom which wasn't very convenient. Also there could have been more choice or variety for breakfast.

    The location of the hotel was ideal for our shopping trip. We only walked a few minutes from the train station and could walk straight out of the hotel to the shops. The room was excellent, it was spacious and immaculately clean.
