This b&b is fine if you're not expecting anything unreasonable for the price & location. It isn't modern but it was clean enough and just about comfy enough to sleep in for a night.

The rooms that I received were tired, basic, the beds were small and uncomfortable, the bathroom was quite disgusting in it's cleanliness and the shower was almost too small to... More

This is easily the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. When we arrived we were taken to the wrong room THREE times . The owner was rude and arrogant. The rooms were too basic for the price paid . The food and entertainment were poor . Massively overpriced and disappointing
