We received a lovely welcome from Cliff and from the moment we arrived nothing was too much trouble. All of the rooms were comfortable & beautifully decorated and the breakfasts were delicous.

The hotel is located just off the top of Lord Street so very quiet location, mattress super comfy, quality duvet and pillows. The hospitality tray is plentiful and in another league compared to others I have seen throughout the...

We were welcomed with warm smiles and made to feel comfortable from the start. The rooms are spotlessly clean and styled with a beautiful mix of contemporary style yet keeping a rich homely feel due to no expense spared decor. Nothing was too much trouble and the friendliness of Cliff and Jane was lovely. All needs are catered for no...
