Positives; in the middle of everything, comfortable bed, nice little view on the front & it's nice & clean. Negatives; I wasn't happy with the room we were given it wasn't worth £150 for 2 nights - it looked like more of a budget room rather than an upgraded room.. Would I stay again? No Would I recommend the hotel?...

We have stayed at this hotel on a number of occasions over the years and keep coming back due to the friendliness of the owners Cookie and Nat and the excellent location of the hotel.
