This is the second time I have stayed here and I will again, the rooms are smart, modern and presentable, Car parking is allocated and easy. Close enough to town for a brisk 20-30min walk or 5 min drive. My only negative this visit was having left my front window open I woke to the unwanted scent of a smoker on the forecourt...( Yuk) - maybe dont open front windows, or go for the upper floor units like I did last time. This stay I got the last room which turned out to be built for easy access,(i e: wheel chair user) which is brilliant, but not something I see regularly in hotels!

Room was pretty basic. It was a decent size which was great. Unfortunately the room wasnt very sound proof and you can hear a lot of what happens outside.

Location was good and room was nice and clean. Bit disappointed that we booked (via Wotif) a room with a double and single bed, but were given only a double bed and no single. Bit awkward when the two people staying are not a couple.
