Parking voucher was issued for 24hr parking across the road from the hotel, less than 5 minute walk back. The room itself...

Lovely girls on front desk. Very nice room too. Breakfast: why is toast brought to the table BEFORE the full english? By the time we wanted to have some toast it was like a limp fish. Just rather peculiar to do it this way round.

Excellent hotel and highly recommend it. Welcomed by lovely staff especially Yohanna who made our stay very enjoyable. We were upgraded at no extra cost, even though we already had a room with a sea view. We ate in the Crabb restaurant on the first night and highly recommend it, not the cheapest but worth every penny. Large comfortable rooms...

Stayed here as it was across the road from concert venue.The front of house staff were very friendly and helpful and the hotel and room itself were a good mix of modern and traditional character.Tall ceilings in clean spacious room and comfortable bed. We ate dinner in the restaurant and it was very good indeed....the breakfast was also superb.
