    One night stay, just for a short, cheapish break. It fit the bill perfectly room was basic but nicely made up, hotel had a nice feeling about it. Plenty of parking available. Decent Wi-Fi strength. Basically what you expect from a BEST WESTERN

    All I can say is that when we were there it was out of action 'until further notice'. Probably best to give reception a call before you book, as we were disappointed when we arrived. Sorry I can't help further.
