We stayed here for one night before heading home we arrived early but they were happy to let us into our room, also letting us leave the car there next morning while we went for breakfast down town. Lovely modern clean room. Nice and central to central shops. Would recommend to friends.

Centrally situated with easy car access, good and free off-street parking although not necessarily outside my unit, clean quiet and warm room with high standard of fittings and everything required for a stay of a few nights, excellent free Wi-Fi, friendly and helpful service ("tell us where you are and we will come and guide you") Downsides: moderately expensive, some...
