A fine little place to stay. The staff was great, breakfast was adequate, room was comfortable and fairly-well-equipped, if not a bit small. I recommend and would stay there again if I am in the area.

The staff were absolutely lovely. Nothing was too much to organise. Rooms well kept with good amenities. Room and venue security was very good. Breakfast was well presented with good variety and all super yummy. We Will definitely return.
