Good central location. Nice clean room with a comfortable bed. Good sized bathroom with a bath and a shower with good pressure. We didnt eat at the property so cannot comment on the food.

Disliked: Staff & service
When we arrived you couldn’t get into the car park because of an outside party going on so had to drive around looking for somewhere to park . Loud music with very heavy bass was blaring out, had to go into the bar where a not particularly friendly woman who was serving took us to our room. The room itself was nice but because it was situated on the car park side the windows were vibrating because of the bass, shutting them made little difference. This party went on from midday to midnight and we were not notified of this beforehand. The party did indeed stop at midnight but with the amount of people mulling around we finally got some peace and quiet about 2.00am . When we left in the morning everything was locked up, we found someone who was working in the kitchen who took the keys, so there was nobody to speak to about our experience.
