The Hotel was perfect. The curtsy bus driver was much less perfect, he arrived after only 15 minutes but sat in his bus texting on his phone for 20 or 25 minutes. As there was a sing on the bus door not to open people stood there in the cold.

My first time here and was pleasantly surprised. The food and service in the bar was excellent. My only issue was the bed was a little odd. It had a wooden frame and it stuck out at a weird angle. It was something you'd associate with a caravan with a foldable head board piece. Would prefer an actual bedside locker rather than shelves you had to reach into. Apart from that I liked the hotel and would stay here again.
