Very good but a couple of things would make this hotel excellent
When I arrived I found that the hotel was on the junction of a relatively busy road, which I wasn't aware of when booking.
I asked for a room away from the road, which they have limited options for, but tried to accommodate my request as best as possible. The room itself was well decorated, very clean and a good size. My only niggle was that the curtains were quite thin, meaning that the headlights of every car that went past illuminated the room. The food (dinner and breakfast) was good, but I had to get the attention of the manager/owner after 30 mins wait at dinner to place my order. Similarly in the morning I had to wait 10 mins to check out. I think they could do with an extra pair of hands to help out, hence the score for customer service. Fix this and the curtains and I would happily stay again!
Was amazed just how good this place was And the food was very good.
Friendly staff and very good service
