We spent 6 nights in this hotel on the 5th floor. The room was just like photos we saw online. Nicely renovated throughout. The bed was comfy. The curtains blocked out all the light so if you like to sleep in, you'll be happy. The only things I didn't like was every now and then you would get a smell... More

The shower room was lovely and renovated to a good standard. There was all the usual amenities in the room but they also supplied laundry liquid and washing up liquid. The location... More

We booked because of the price and the location. We booked and were looked after by the onsite operators who were extremely friendly and very honest that there were some renovations still taking place. They have just taken over the building, and are renovating to "bring it back to its former glory!" The room was like a 5 star hotel.... More
