Travelled with family
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Disliked: Amenities
The only thing is that it is located in the centre of the town. The room did not have much space to even walk. They did not provide a microwave in the room.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Bed comfortable, room ok, breakfast disappointed not all available, no bread no eggs. People waiting too long to get breakfast as breakfast item was not replaced quick enough. They blamed it on Brext which is not true. They should have a reliable company to buy products from or send someone to the local shop near by
