This is a good example of how someone's service can really change the experience you encounter... Accommodation was dated but still sufficient considering the price service was second to none any problems the guy there was happy to help!! Would go back !

I stayed here for 3 nights for business in August in room 14. The staff were all very friendly, helpful and welcoming, but my room was small and sometimes loud trucks would go by in the night waking me up. Aside from that, the rooms was clean and good value and it was easy walking to the Main Street of... More

I stopped for 2 nights and will return in a flash. What great value for money. Centrally located and only a couple minutes walk to the shops, what a great location. No road noise and it was pleasant to listen to the tolling bells of the local church each afternoon. I had a family room that was bright and airy,... More

The room I had was a little small and cluttered but it was very clean and comfortable. It was well serviced and the staff were very friendly. The location is central, close to the centre of town. It is reasonable value for a nights stop over.

The décor is a bit aged but the premises was kept clean. The room was clean with exception to the fold sofa bed that... More
