Good location, very quiet, private car park, very clean rooms. The halls are slightly dated but our room was a lot more up to date. If all the internal doors could get a dose of wd40 it would be even quieter!

Don't let reception put you off. Great stay.
Walking into reception they ceiling had been taken down due to refurbishment. Called on the phone for a staff member to check us in and after a few minutes he appeared from upstairs and approached us with no mask on. The rooms were actually a shock and really nice. Comfy bed, good TV and nice shower with plenty of hot water. Although breakfast buffet was advertised with this booking do to covid nothing was available. Although nobody mentioned this when checking in. Strong smell of marijuana due to some of the other guests but a decent hotel.
