Great hotel on ideal location
Lovely hotel right in the centre of the town. Handy for everything. Rooms myself and colleague stayed in were really smart. Only small issue was that the TV was a little small. Staff were great and food excellent. You will meed to park in council car parks which are close by. They are pay and display but free overnight. Recommended.
