        This hotel was close to the highway, which allowed us to find the hotel easily, but not right on the highway and noisy. The room was very clean.

        The bathroom was very small with a very low toilet and tiny shower. The water in the sink was "not suitable for drinking". A staff member told us that was because of a water softener but I was wary. The bed duvet on the double bed was too short and not wide enough to cover two people in the bed. The staff gave us another blanket when we asked for a bigger duvet, but we were still left with no sheet the size of the bed and didn't sleep well.

        The breakfast full cooked was excellent

        Suggest butter should be on tables.Waiter did not bother to fetch it for us when asked.would be good if you could have musuc or a radio on at breakfast. You could not chat without all other guests listening in;

        Very friendly staff. Good breakfast. Convenient but quiet location. Very nice but simple green open space grounds at the back.

        Water pressure in our shower in our bedroom upstairs was very poor.
