So 7 of us stayed here. In 3 rooms. On arrival the fella straight away gave me a bad impression. Grumpy. We took the car around the back of the building to the most grotty car park ever. It smelled horrible. Rubbish all over. My aunt who was driving was struggling to get the car up the curb as it... More

Our room was perfectly acceptable with extra bedding and plenty of clean towels. The breakfast was lovely with a cheerful kitchen staff. A good choice of food was on... More
