Nearly as good as previous visit

Having stayed here before we knew what to expect. Room was fine with everything you need. Breakfast was good. Only complaint we had was our room was on the ground floor next to back access door. From 6:30am we were woken with deliveries arriving and the buzzer sounding for access. A small fridge in the room would be handy.

The best thing about my stay was...

Great location for shops, train station and Play House. Room was a good size, bed very comfy, plenty of pillows. Breakfast as really goods with lots to choose from. Only suggestion I have is that it would be nice to have a small fridge in the room.
