Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
For personal reasons my stay at the hotel had problems. The staff couldn't have been more helpful, their help meant my situation wasn't made worse. The room itself was small but spotlessly clean and the shower was brilliant. Fridge and tea/coffee making facilities at this price range were very welcome. Free parking after 630pm and all weekend was also really helpful. To all the staff who helped with my stay, thank you very much.
