Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Nice hotel, quiet surroundings, good breakfast. Everything was fine but disagreed with taking £25 payment on check in, when the room was paid for and bar/restaurant charges were taken on ordering. Had to email head office to get the payment voided several days after our stay.
