                  Room, restaurant, staff

                  When we arrived there was a problem with our booking which was immediately sorted by the staff finding alternative accommodation in the town centre. We were welcomed back the following day with chocolates and wine as compensation. The staff could not have been more apologetic or contrite;they did all they could to make us welcome. The room was large, well furnished, clean and well equipped. It has a restaurant and bar attached with a very good and reasonably priced menu. Whilst being about two kilometres from the town centre it was on the main road through and easy to find. Driving in and parking w ere no problem. There was a supermarket and several cafes and eateries closeby. I would have no hesitation in re booking.

                  Stayed 1 night in April 2017

                  Ideal place to stay ”

                  Huge room, ample parking, and all the facilities for either an overnight or extended stay. A restaurant serving reasonably priced meals was a welcome bonus. Highly recommended.

                  Spacious room with full kitchen. Clean, new and modern. location a bit far from city centre. Staff were short. No one at reception when we check in, have to go to restaurant for staff...but it's not a big deal. Over all still a good place to stay

                  Very generous room space, good kitchen ware and utensils, large space.

                  Happy with our stay, other than have to carry your luggage to the first floor if you get the room on the first floor, it is manageable nothing serious. Like the room with good space as if you can stay there for a few days without a problem. Lots of parking space.
