On arrival the exterior looks promising, freshly painted and lovely flower baskets. Inside however it gets steadily worse! Dark surroundings and low lighting give a slightly grim atmosphere. Booked a single room without ensuite as no others were available. Room small, very dated furnishings, and bed linen/cushions with stain marks, mattress needed replacing. The bathroom, shared with FOUR other rooms was very poor, didnt even risk a shower. Badly in need of major refurb.
This place was just about bearable for 2 nights but at £38 for a basic room not good value at all. Wouldnt stay again if an alternative was available.
