Sample items include crispy back bacon, sausages (including Quorn), eggs, pan–fried, baked pastries, mini muffins, cereals, fresh fruit, chilled juices, tea and unlimited Costa Coffee. Lunch and dinner menus include traditional and contemporary dishes.
You can never go without a snack or drink as there are also vending machines available at all times.
Guest rooms come with air–conditioning, a flat screen TV, hairdryer, tea/coffee facilities, desk, carpeted floors, heating, bathroom (all with power shower, some may have a bath) and a Hypnos bed with a duvet.
