An absolute delightful hotel. A must stay.
Well what a wonderful hotel. From check in to check out it was such a fantastic place to stay. The lady who runs the hotel is just an absolute dream, smiley, friendly, welcoming. The hotel has everything you would water, good wifi, clean bed and room, great location and wonderful artworks. The too floor has laundry facilities and a fully stocked kitchen all of which is free of charge. It felt like a home from home and I wouldnt hesitate to recommend or stay again.
