Located just off the main highstreet the hotel has been modernised to a good standard. The room and en suite had a quality feel to them. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room and en suite were very compact and there's no lift, so bear that in mind. You'll be carrying your luggage up a spiral staircase. Parking on street (free 6pm-9am) or nearby for £5/24 hours.
