Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The room was very clean and a good size, free wi fi. Due to covid all tea and coffee and kettle was removed from room but you could ask at reception and they would make one. Breakfast was limited and brought to your room but was adaquate and no fault of hotel. There was no bar open and dinning room closed but plenty of pubs and eating places nerby. Staff friendly and only had to ask and it was done.
