Ideal for business travellers

Pros: Rooms are excellent
Cons: Breakfast lacked fruit cocktail this times around, which left you with cereal of cooked breakfast.
Location: Great location clsoe to London.
Great service as always, althugh breakfast was not as good as previous stays this time around. Overall though, a really good place to stay, well appointed homely rooms, great pub attached. Good food and staff always willing to help.
