Stayed at this hole early December. Three old mates meeting up for the weekend. Check in from some guy who didn't seem right bothered since they had already got the money from bookings.com.

Stayed for two nights. Food was fair and room was tidy. Don't expect The Ritz but your not paying for it. Decor is fading and bar area needs sorting out. Ceiling is held up with temporary wood nailed to it.
