It was a good experience - a quaint-like experience in a modern city - a familial feel to it. Warm reception and great breakfast service. Make sure fruit bowls and juices are topped up regularly!
Overall, we were delighted with the Ashley Hotel. The staff, without exception, were most charming, friendly and helpful, dealing efficiently and quickly with any problems we encountered, like finding us a garage nearby when we suffered a puncture, and recommending restaurants, and finding us parking accommodation. The hotel is extremely well run, everything works, like hot water, shower and heating. Our double room was rather small, but beautifully quiet. The lighting over the bed is rudimentary, not allowing for either person in the bed to have his/her own light on separately while the other one sleeps. The bed was comfortable. Everything was perfectly clean. Breakfast was served quickly and to a reasonably late hour of 10 am. The bacon was very good. The hotel is very conveniently situated for the city's amenities. We would happily recommend The Ashley.
Friendly staff, good service, excellent breakfast!
