Perfect position from Victoria Coach station…less than 5 mins walk. What a gem of a hotel, Family run and what a fantastic atmosphere they have here. Met the daughter on reception when we dropped our bags of early not a problem a fantastic service. We met her parents when we had a complimentary coffee. We were out all day and returned around 11pm when we were greeted by the night porter again friendly warm welcome. Room was spot on everything you needed..lovely and warm and quiet. |Breakfast was booked for 9.30 and our table was reserved. A selection of coffees or teas , fruit juice, light side and a choice of main breakfast was on the menu. Perfect start to the day nicely presented and complimentary top ups of warm drinks. Lovely friendly atmosphere during service all staff most helpful. |When we checked out we were told we could leave our bags to collect before catching the bus home. |Definitely returning here. |

The rooms were clean and well kept and met all standards. Breakfast was included and of a high quality as if eating out at one of the top restaurants. The most amazing thing about the hotel was the excellent service from the staff. Whether on reception or serving food they really couldn’t do enough. They made sure that you had all you needed and were happy. It felt like what they did was very personal rather than just to fit expectation. Definitely would recommend and return to this establishment.
