Google Reviews

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   My husband and I had a lovely room overlooking the river were we sat out and had a drink on the tables and chairs. So close to downtown that we didn’t have to drive to see many sites and lots of choices to eat. Patricia was incredibly helpful and friendly! Highly recommend!

Review:   Good central location, with delicious meals in the restaurant and fast service. Hair-dryers were a bit sad and the underfloor heating in our room was hard to control, but otherwise a good spot for work stays.

Review:   Dreadful place, expensive and small room with only one chair for two people. Had to take resin chair from the swimming pool so two of us could be seated. Had planned to stay a second night but cancelled
