My cleaning trip
I'm. This sure why a hotel should only offer housekeeping services every other day. Who does that in this day and age. We had to ask for our rooms to be cleaned and we had to remove wet towels and ask for fresh ones. Not great service not great value for money. Definitely not a 3 star

Nice Stay
I have stayed several times at this hotel and this time it was very nice to stay there. The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. Wifi was good and so the stay was perfect. Will certainly stay again. One downside - they do not have any laundry facilities.

A lovely experience!
From check in to check out we were very pleased with our stay. We had drinks in the bar and dinner in the restaurant both of which were very good, although we did feel they were a bit overpriced. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable and although there was a wedding in the hotel on both nights we were there. We were not disturbed by noise at all! The staff were lovely and your receptionist went above and beyond when I realised I had forgotten my make up remover. She actually gave me her own! Wonderful! Many thanks for a lovely stay!
