Location, the little things likes fresh milk, and the friendliness if staff.

Convenient location, close to town, close to the function we were attending, but would return as the service was delightful from the friendliness of the front office staff to the generous amenities they provide, such as a bottle of water on check out. Room was spacious and modern.
