Would I return here?

This is an ideal hotel for solo travel for the following reasons.

  • Comfortable rooms
  • Mixed clientele including couples, business travellers and I was not the only person travelling solo
  • Cosy bar where I felt comfortable being on my own at night
  • Very helpful staff
  • Excellent, quiet location
  • 24 hour reception
  • Phone in the room

Negatives included a broken plug socket which was promptly noted by the receptionist once mentioned. Occasionally there is a delay on ordering at the bar as reception staff also man the bar area.
