Thank you for your great review. I am delighted that you enjoyed our clean and modern facilities.Our breakfast is a good start to the day and very reasonable. There are many ways to pay and as you suggest; cash and alternatively, credit or debit cards. We are renovating our reception area, to increase the size and make it more welcoming and warmer. Hopefully on your next visit you'll find it much more cosy.
