Latest Review

" We had a really easy stay: great location, key card access to rooms and bathrooms and four power points for our twin share room. The bar on Level 1 has great deals and seemed to be really popular. Free pancakes for breakfast is a great idea (though we were never up in time) and there seemed to be loads of activities on offer. Would stay again. "
