“Cheap, worn out, dirty”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

This Hotel is worn out, dirty an loud. The rooms are not cosy at all, with brick walls, old furniture with marks all over. Our shower was ok, but all the rest of the bathroom is just bad, sink far to low, everything old and worn, wall metal dirty or with corrosion all over. No hairdryer. The window does not open but as well not really close, the noise from nearby highway and the wind is going directly through the room (we visited the place in the winter). No breakfast offered. The staff was friendly, helping, everything in the room which is subject to the service seemed properly done, but the clean sheets were compromised by the dirty old cover below it, the old carpet might have been vacuumed, what is definetly useless, etc. We accidentally drove by and went on the next day, happy to leave. Shame on the owner, renovate (like the casino in the main building) or close that hole down..

3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

It is only $80 per night, including continental breakfast, so really how much can you expect? It is an old style room with the brick walls, a bed with a bit of a dip in the middle, however the location is extremely handy and the rooms are very clean. The bathroom is a good size and the shower is massive. I have actually stayed here 3 times, so really don't let this review put you off because it is handly. There is a pub attached to it that has good meals. All in all is good for the money.

Room Tip: They only have a few rooms with double beds the rest have singles so best to book.
