A short overnight stay for work reasons. I was in the 'Box' room which was, as anticipated, small but never the less very comfortable and ideal for my needs. staff communicated well prior to my arrival on the day in an effort to anticipate my arrival. friendly and efficient reception on arrival with a clear explanation of the communal areas. a nice breakfast in the morning and easy check out with an invoice being emailed. a nice relaxed place to stay for a fair price.
