    “ Very comfortable”

    Very attentive staff. Comfortable and caring atmosphere. Fridge in room very handy. Noise from road not an issue although heavy traffic at rush hour times. A full length mirror in the bedroom would have been welcomed. Lovely big bath towel ... So often they are just too small!
