Location is great & staff are friendly. However I hated the room... there are just 2 top windows no daylight and no fresh air as it’s an open corridor so if you leave it open you can hear everyone walking past. I get really funny...More

I recognise that this is a budget hotel so I am not expecting high-end service... But they don't even cover the basics. Our toilet didn't flush at all, so we let reception know straight away on arrival - we always like to give management a...More
