Good alrounder, in great position.
Fabulous location and the staff were very friendly/helpful. Disabled parking was right by the front door, which was very benefical in this extreme weather. REally nejoyed the talk/tour which was included in the stay. Niggly things got me really, we were staying 2 nights and were not given replacement hand towels. My partner accidentally knocked a drink over the quilt cover, and quilt but this was noy changed. The rooms were initiaaly quite cold but warmed up very quickly once the radiator was on, we were suprised give the location/ newness of building and architecture there was a draft coming through the windows; but it was extreme cold weather. Wonderful position, walking diatnce in to the town and lots of restaraunts. Food and drinks very reasonably priced. Bu
