Lovely people to deal with, nice room. The shower was not the usual, but, after being shown how to adjust it, it was adequately okay. Will definitely always stay there. Nice area, nice reception.

Great location, easy to access, friendly staff. Warm and cosy room. Concerned about the amenities, the toilet water pressure was weak and the shower we found hard to regulate the temperature. Floors in bathroom very dangerous when wet as tbey became very slippery.
