Excellent location to get to the christmas market. Good size and value rooms. Service from the owners made the stay welcoming. The breakfast was the best tasty and worth waking up early for. Will definitely book to come back because of the welcoming service.

Spent two days in this lovely hotel with friends run by Brend and Veronica who were outstanding hosts. Hospitable and well decorated the hotel hit all the right notes. Breakfast was really good , the bedroom was very clean and well presented and location perfect for the City centre. Highly recommended
