Well, it is what you would expect- pretty basic. But it was clean and in a superb location. The staff were really nice and the pub food was well priced with a great pub atmosphere. A great combination.

The hotel and staff are welcoming and friendly, the meals are ok the price of a room is somewhat fair but the rooms are very in need of a good clean. No milk in the fridge, wall paper and plaster coming off is not good. Dirty linen. But the location is excellent

the room was clean and well equiped, it was in a walking distance from city center. The walls were very thin so you could hear everything but it wasn´t too bad. There is a bar downstairs and a friendly staff.

Hi Winter M unfortunately some guests do leave doors open that should be closed We do lock the carpark at 8pm each night and staff perform security check periodically throughout the night.
