Reviewed yesterday NEW

We were only here overnight, probably as well since the room we had was not really suited to a longer stay. Some reviews refer to spacious rooms and enormous bathrooms that we had neither. The main area of the bedroom fitted only the bed, a single chair with small table leaving the second person only the bed to sit on....

My husband and myself have just spent a night at the above hotel. What a fantastic place. The rooms were large and roomy and spotlessly clean. A great bathroom with a superb shower. Loads of hot water and the pressure was great also. Breakfast was brilliant. Self service, but a good choice. I would certainly stay there again, and thoroughly...

It's great to walk into a hotel that surprises you in a good way. It has a modern funky reception. We were welcomed and booked very professionally. Checked in early with no problem at all. Breakfast is plentiful and well presented. Our room large, clean and well decorated. We'd definitely stay again!

Fantastic! We had been badly let down and needed accommodation on the day. They had availability and managed to give my two teenage daughters a twin room right next door to us. The design was modern, chic and contemporary. The breakfast, even at busy times, was delicious- a bit more fruit would be nice! Definitely go again.

I stayed here for 3 nights on a business trip, mostly for such an ideal location. I wasn't expecting much, but i was wonderfully surprised! Easy to find, plenty of parking and friendly staff. Rooms are massive, modern and clean. I was missing an office chair in my room which was a bit annoying for working in the evenings, but...

Clean, new good showers and beds, nice breakfast and wifi. We booked and used this on a moments notice after missing the ferry (!). Actually took the stress out of the situation, easy to find and close to the port

Three of us stayed here for two nights last week. We booked two rooms and had a 4 am check-in for the first night. I was worried that they might cancel our rooms as "no shows", so called ahead to let them know we would be very late. They made a note on our record and we had a very...
