Very Good 8.4 From 72 reviews

Fair 4.0
Not easy access to disabled suite. Bed linen clean but pillows very uncomfortable. No hob,only microwave. Full kitchen advertised.No waste bin in bathroom. Laundry facilities very dirty. Really old grubby dryer. Certainly overrated as a four star facility.

Well run and excellent staff
Extremely pleasant stay albeit marred by the noise of the traffic - not the proprietors fault!
