    Very pleasant Manager...most informative and helpful. Breakfast was good...plentiful. However, the room was somewhat awkward in terms of its configuration...the shower being the problem! Grubby and tired...cramped and tired in terms of its decoration.

    New Town
    Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town,
