It's right in the middle of town, central and handy to everything. The staff are friendly and helpful. There are clean restrooms right alongside the iSite. The bus stops are very close to the iSite as well.

As I currently have a toilet-training toddler, her favourite place in The Square is the wonderful 'toddler toilet' which is located in the mother's room near the ladies restrooms. I kid you not,...

This one is located dead center in the Square near the clock tower. A must if you are new to town or need BUS information since the buses drop off there and pick up there. Very helpful and nice as always

I came here on an Intercity bus and, at first, thought of it as a bus interchange in a park. Then I used the clean toilets, got some beautiful postcards and brochures, then talked to the duck contingent. My 20 minutes was well spent and I felt refreshed ahead of my next 5 hours on the bus.

What more could you ask for. They are centrally located, the opening hours are great. They are polite and friendly. What more can one ask for?

A gorgeous 20's building with a high-tech annex providing the best of both worlds to the traveler. Everything a traveler could need, from restrooms and showers to information and sanctuary, for free while in transit in this very windy town!
