excellent hotel, breakfast plentiful and fresh, staff friendly and the room was immaculate and very comfortable, A lovely place to stay and very handy for the City/Dom area

only negative, and not a major one, is there's no parking, even if it says ´´hotels own parking´´ there is none! but plenty on local streets and car parks.

A very pleasant small hotel in a quiet, convenient location. Staff were friendly and helpful and the entire hotel was spotless. Breakfast was exceptional with a huge choice and no less than 8 types of fruit juice. Tea, coffee and mulled wine were complementary all day long - a nice touch.
