Customer Reviews
Overall Rating 5
based on 1 reviews.
Customer Rating: Mrs Munro, Bristol As requested we were given a lovely large room in a quiet part of the hotel overlooking a lovely outdoor area. It was great value and lovely to get the £25 gift voucher for food. The only downside was the person in the room next door who must have fallen asleep with a loud TV on, noise did not stop until 4am!!
