“Avoid at all cost”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

This hotel is simply terrible. No lift (was on the 4th floor), no power socket in the room, no WiFi - although they advertise there is - but the WiFi when we visited was an old fashioned modem to be shared between the guests. Obviously, that does not work very well without a power socket. Rooms are scruffy, bathrooms even more so. Beds were hard. No hot water as the in-room water heated did not work. Breakfast is horrible. Rats the size of chihuahuas were running around outside after dusk. Just do not stay here.
