Relaxing and great place to unwind.
It’s in the centre of town, great parking and cheap. The restaurant and bar are amazing to view. We sat with a glass of wine just enjoying the atmosphere.

Room was lovely and the shower and toiletries were fab! The view was the only thing that let it down. Dumpsters and carpark are not what you want to look out to

8/10 Very good

Staff were friendly and nice and properly is easily accessible to food and drinks. However, they charged me for requesting a baby cot. I feel that it could just be added into the total bill of the hotel instead of a separate charge because a lot of other hotels offer free baby cot so this was quite unusual.
