The room was very spacious, newly refurbished and very clean. The staff were very obliging and couldn't do enough for you. We did find the stairs (about 15) a bit much though. We are thankful of the hint given us by the staff for the restaurant Alsheel just down the road which was a great experience.

Booked this hotel on the basis of the excellent reviews from previous guests, which are totally accurate - but why did no one (at the time of my booking) mention the noise from vehicles, especially trucks & boy racers, on the main road? I was in room 6, which is a nice room - clean, a comfortable bed & pillows, great shower, and a friendly welcome from the bar staff on check-in - but it’s at the front, overlooking the road, with windows on two sides, which aren’t properly sealed, and it was like having the windows open to the street! I mentioned the noise in my reply to Expedia’s “How was your check-in?” email - the hotel’s response was to ask if it was from other guests, and when I replied that it was just from the road, I heard nothing more from the hotel. I’m assuming they were full that night. There is a review from someone who stayed in room 14, who said it was quiet - well that’s because room 14 is away from the road! Bring earplugs, just in case. Also, the blinds don’t really cover the windows, so the room gets bright as soon as the sun is up.
