Super friendly staff. Made us feel very welcome. A delicious refreshing drink and sweet snack when we arrived and bottles of water in the car when it was brought back to us for the trip home.

This refurbished hotel is extremely stylish and upmarket and service excellent with special touches such as being welcomed with delicious cold drinks and cakes. However our stay was not as enjoyable as we’d hoped due to being kept awake by late night chatter from the room next door. In terms of decor our room was gorgeous, but the dimensions were not generous and somewhat awkward. The noise issue is such a shame as I don’t think our neighbours were excessively noisy (we could even hearing one of them snoring). My recommendation is that you bring earplugs just in case.
