Staff very welcoming and friendly, room was lovely for what we needed bed comfy. Toiletries. towels and plenty of tea and coffee etc. Nice quiet surroundings and tidy premises breakfast was plentiful and a variety. The accommodation is a way from the city centre but you can walk which is about 20-30 mins walk (which is nice in good weather) or there is service buses you can catch for a very reasonable price. Thankyou will definatley be back and will recommend.

Negatives: Key collection not particularly close, TV wasn't tuned in and it couldn't find any channels when I tried, and I didn't realise at the time of booking that there is no breakfast on a Sunday. Positives: Nice room, great price, good free WiFi. Overall, I would stay here again.
