Disliked: Amenities
The price was good for the area and the staff were friendly. We were allowed to leave luggage and it had a late check out of 11am. The room was clean. The negatives were that the breakfast room was crowded and it didn’t have an amazing selection. The tv also didn’t work too well had problems with reception. It was a great rate for the area and we could have the kids in the same room.

Great location which is close to every spots. Staffs are friendly and helpful. Rooms were not big, but enough for a family of 3. Breakfast buffet is standard but a little bit disappointed there's no black pudding or hashbrown. Overall it's recommended.
