Great quality and value. The rooms were excellent- spacious and well detailed and very comfortable. Bar and dining area really nice. We started our evening at the bar and ended up eating there as well. Again, service quality great. Staff pleasant and helpful.

All the important things - just perfect. The rooms: most comfortable hotel bed in a long while, plenty of hanging space, roomy and comfy BUT only instant coffee in the minibar and we had a view of a carpark.
