4/5 Good

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

Very clean although the room was dated. Regular loud noises continually heard in the room which we think was from a pipe. Front desk staff weren’t particularly friendly. Overall a nice hotel though in a good location. Grounds are lovely.
