Bedroom was large and well equipped with everything you need for a break. Entertainment every night with bingo most nights. The bar was more expensive than most hotels I have stayed... More

We were shown to room 6... More

People stay away from this hotel ... It's really bad. The rooms are dark, dingy, old, . The beds are also broken , and don't even get me started on the bathroom . The breakfast is also terrible and smells, food is produced for the week and re cooked
