This place is an over priced run down dump. It is on a temporary lease by a foreign man who is making a killing from letting run down, water damaged, bodged up rooms that are so ingrained with years of use that they could do with nothing less than a complete gutting and renovation. The lady who works there, Annie, is a dream and a saint and was the only reason I didn't run screaming from this hole. While she defended her employee you could tell that she heard the complaints on a daily basis. I did not see one happy customer in the 4 nights I was there so the positive reviews amaze me. I have been traveling for two months nd have stayed in 18 hotels and this is the second worse of the bunch. From my experience Any hotel that does not allow cancellation is one you need to stay clear from. The guy doesn't care about his patrons (he's never there but I know a few of the other customers contacted him) he is only there to make a load of money which he is as he's charging hotel rates for a run down hole. To paint a picture the toilet was all broken and all the side walls were completely water damaged. there was carpet around the toilet that had been there since at least the 80's - I could go on for ever but I wish someone had written this review before I went. PS if there are any perspective employers who would like the most dedicated, hard working, friendly, employee you should contact Annie and get her out of there. I have her details if needed. She would be an asset to any hotel or B & B .
