3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Great location and Bar etc. Excellent Breakfast and very professional/Polite staff. Bedroom/Bathroom is only adequate and a little expensively priced at £120. The only negative given i had a Queen sized bed!!! was that it was too short. I'm only 5'11 and found my feet hanging over the end of the bed. So after an uncomfortable night's sleep would not be returning.
