Excellent hotel , very comfortable and friendly staff. Well situated in the town centre. Rooms large and warm. Very good breakfast . One small complaint is the sockets in the rooms are hidden away and difficult to try and charge phones and tablets.

The best of everything in a hotel: convenient to where I want to explore, but also comfortable and quiet. We had a lovely room clear at the back, with a tiny balcony that overlooked the canal and parkland behind the hotel. The double French doors opened wide into the room, and we enjoyed the evening breeze. The bed was comfortable,...
