Travelled with family
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Fronting onto a major route it was easy to access. There is a bus stop right outside, with off road parking at rear. It was very peaceful. Our room was large, bright, airy and very comfortable, with the smart tv we were able to watch a Netflix film (it was snowy February).
