Good hotel for those on a budget No night porter for drinks after bar closed Breakfast lacked imagination Staff very friendly and helpful Bit out of the way if you are looking for nightlife and other bars to visit although the there are a couple of nice restaurants close by giving good value for money

Been going to Velamar for years and have never been disappointed. Had a minor initial hiccup when we arrived but all was resolved extremely quickly. We had some snacks in the lounge this time and they were better value than the restaurants outside.

We have given this hotel 5 out of 5, not because it is perfect but because of the nice staff, cleanliness and the breakfast. We were given a room on the first floor (no balcony as we had booked a basic room). The room was large and very clean, nice comfy beds. A clean fridge, kettle and cups (bring your... More

Pros: value for money, clean, good choice breakfast, large bed, fridge and kettle (but no tea, coffee, milk) in room, 24hr reception, friendly helpful staff, pleasant lounge area, free wi-fi, bar drinks/snack food reasonably priced. Cons: room tired and needed decorating, basin in bathroom crazed and needed replacing.
