    Good comfortable hotel

    Stopped here for two nights. The cleanliness was excellent and bed comfy. The food was good in the hotel restaurant. My only issue was how hot the room was even without heating on. It was bearable by having both windows fully open without the curtains closed. We were in room 3 on the back of the hotel. I would go back with our dog but only if the dog friendly rooms were cooler.

    Room with a view !!

    The room allocated was not as described in your correspondence to me namely a twin room with a seating area. The staff arranged another room after we had unpacked and had to repack to move. I am 80 years old and do not need to carry luggage up four flights of stairs. The food, the staff, the service, was very good, room allocation not so. I'm not sure where the responsibility lies for such problems but sort it out, please.
