Receptionist was very welcoming and Duty Manager Iryna was excellent. I had a very difficult time prior to arrival and she looked after me like a family member. Nothing was too much trouble with any member of staff I encountered. My first stay and very impressed for this standard of hotel. Olive.

We have stayed here on many occasions and it never disappoints.Plenty free parking, and a regular bus service just yards away, so just drop the car and relax.Clean spacious practical rooms, a good quality breakfast with a varied choice along with a nice pool and kids activities make it a must for families.
