Friendly & obliging staff, quickly attended to a minor issue. Quiet location. A sort 2-3 minute walk to the RSA and Town Centre. Safe onsite parking. Very pleasant window views of river walkway. We will be back.

The veiws were good. The bed was comfortable. The staff were friendly. The room was clean. The window by the door needed a curtain on it, as the light and sun shone thru it. Keeping us awake. Otherwise room was great.

Dissapointed at having to wait for someone to turn up to check us in . Needs a little maintenance such as broken window latch , cobwebs around doors and rusty table and chairs . Tv picture quality very poor. Probably give it a miss next time.
