3/5

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities

The room is clean and tidy, but the music of the pub on the other side of the road was really noisy. The place is quite close to the town center.

4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Very large kitchen/lounge area with lots of seating and food storage, theatre room was a nice touch. Perfect location for day entertainment as well as night life. Staff was friendly and extremely helpful with booking activities. Room service came in multiple times a day (3x) which was a bit strange (along with zero alcohol rule) but an awesome stay overall!

Stayed 7 nights in Sep. 2019

5/5 Excellent
