Me and my girlfriend booked three nights here as everything else was fully booked. We saw the reviews and we're not expecting a lot. To our surprise, we had an excellent visit! The rooms have everything you need, and comfy beds. The staff were so friendly to us especially the lovely ladies serving breakfast which was also amazing! I could... More

Booked this through last minute hotels (will never use that service again) £124.50 for one night in a hotel that I would feel ripped off paying £30 per night. Staff were friendly, but room was in need of desperate decoration, no plug in the wash basin, water took ten minutes to run hot, shower did not drain properly, one towel... More

Staff, unfriendly, unhelpful and at times rude. The room, stained and with walls so thin we could hear our neighbours complain 3 doors down. You have to pay up front and there is no cooked breakfast on a Sunday. On the plus side it's in a decent location.

Pleasant hotel, close to the main street. The breakfast was very good, the staff was very friendly and helpful. However. the beds were hard like rocks, and the traffic sounds. The room was porly isolated.

I arrived here at 1330hrs and stood in a dingy lobby waiting for the staff to come in from outside the door where they were having a smoke. I took the key and walked the five flights of stairs to the room. On the way up there were doors open to bathrooms on several levels, given the condition of them... More
