This is a chic hotel that is well furnished and generates a warm homely atmosphere. The interior is smart and stylish and has a great ambience. The restaurant has a good menu and the food is well prepared even if service takes a while longer than expected. Breakfast and dinner were excellent during our overnight stay. Overall this hotel provides a high standard of service but car parking can be difficult as the hotel doesn't have dedicated parking facilities.

A brilliantly located hotel very close to local amenities. A great interaction with friendly staff on arrival which makes you feel very welcome. I found a cozy room waiting for a solo traveler with a comfortable bed (very important to me) and spotlessly clean (again very important to me). I would recommend this hotel and plan to stay again tomorrow evening!
