Free parking and wifi too. My issue with this chain is the limited choice of food in the bar and restaurant and I went elsewhere, the food is overpriced for...

Reception staff were polite and friendly. Bar staff were very sociable, although perhaps not the most experienced. The breakfast staff were a mix of very helpful to one who lacked manners. Rooms were clean and large enough. No views to speak of, but that didn't matter for me!

That said, the room very clean and comfortable. All the staff helpful and friendly. We enjoyed a meal in the restaurant both nights, food was...

The price of the room was very reasonable and so we made the booking. The hotel staff were very welcoming. Our room...
