This hotel was great- location, staff, cleanliness. Exactly what was needed during current times and everything ran smoothly. One minor issue I would say is that I called down to ask if someone could collect our bin from room and was told to leave it outside the door and it wasn’t taken. I didn’t call down again to check though and I’m sure it would have been sorted if I had but there were a few bags of rubbish in the corridors so guessing other guests had same issue.

We enjoyed our stay, the staff where attentive and helpful. The room was down a few steps even though it was a family room. Made using the pram difficult but that was the only negative. Recommended!
