Second time staying here
Stayed here for a second time in the space of a month, again for work purposes. As I said in my first review I wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again so was more than happy to re-book here.

Perfect for short stays
Did a 1 night stay here in April for work purposes. Only used to sleep in but the hotel seemed nice, decent size Carpark out front & restaurant on site which smelt really nice. check in was quick & easy as was checking out. The room was very comfortable to be in the bed was also comfortable resulting in a good nights sleep. Good location too only a 5 minute walk from restaurants & convenience shops. Would recommend.
