Great location, freindly staff, especially the guy on the tours/info , he was ver good, Dan I think they called him.
Beds are so comfy, could have slept in them for hours, but too much to do !
Slap bang in the middle of the town, can't get any more central, didn't go for the breakfast option, as it was a little on the expensive side, but there are plenty of other options, and McDonalds 50m away is a fail safe option if all else fails!
The Hotel is obviously old, but it is has pretty tidy rooms, that look ike they have had half a make over, the Beds/Bathroom ect have all new decor, but the carpets leave a lot to be desired, ours was full of stains, that hadnt been cleaned very well, one obviously looked like someone had been sick over the side of the bed, which is not a nice sight, and let the hotel down for me, when the receptionist asked if my stay was good, I said everything was great but you need new carpets in the room, she agreed, so the hotel know about the problem.
Apart from that its a great base, at the end of the day, you only sleep there most of the time , and its central location and free parking are its main plus points. It does have free wifi , albeit a little slow at times .
If you are in one of the end rooms like we were, be aware of the ice making machine at the end , this is noisy for the rooms are the very end I would think, also you an use the lift at that side of the hotel which takes you straight down to the main street, so you dont have to walk all the way down the hallway to get out of the hotel, something a lot of people who stayed didn't know about
