Sara took us on a pub-crawl and together we had so much fun! Everything was very clean, and the beds were nice. Overall, if there was one thing I should say... More

We had two nights here, it was clean and comfortable, there was a big social area, guitars and a bar. The staff were also really lovely, Rita especially was an absolute legend in helping us. It's super close to everything, in a great location and there is a 2 euro buffet spread every morning. Great value for money!!
