4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Overall we enjoyed our stay, a great welcome from the reception team and it genuinely felt as though they couldn’t do enough. The hotel is in a brilliant location within easy walking distance of the castle, shops and restaurants which is also the only downside, we did it find there was a lot of noise from the local bars!
