    The room was comfortable and clean. Breakfast was plentiful. The pool was an added treat.

    Attractive hotel in converted old building with good location, good food.

    Would have appreciated a hook for a hand towel near to the handbasin. It was not clear that parking was not free when I booked, and although this was not exorbitant (£13 per day) I resented the charge and put me of Novotel. A minor thing spoiled an otherwise excellent stay.
