The rooms were tiny. There was a strong musty smell of wet carpet throughout not just our room but most of the hotel. We saw a cleaner wearing HAZMAT gear in one of the rooms and my daughter found a small zip lock drug bag in the corridor, I told management but they didn't seem fazed. The toilet and shower...

The room was nice and clean, and the size was appropriate for the price we paid. However, it would be great if housekeeping didn't knock loudly on everyone's door at 8:30 in the morning waking everyone up! Also, they don't seem to make the bunk bed, not sure why! And the bathroom gets rather wet after showers since there's no...

I stayed twice in a few days; a Thursday night and then the Sunday night following. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Office staff were very helpful. Though the hotel is on a busy road, road noise was not an issue. These stays were value for money.

This hotel does just the trick, it's easy to find, free parking and friendly. The Hotel Manager was very friendly and accomodating, she went the extra mile. The only thing to be aware of is that the rooms are about half the size of a normal room and not exactly modern but they were very clean a.mnd the bed was...

When I stayed back in August I struggled to park, not the hotels fault but there were trucks and cars with trailers taking numerous extra spaces. Staff were really friendly and helpful. The room just felt a bit dirty with hair and dust. The bathroom was also showing its age with black mould in places. I think I'm a bit...

We have stayed here a number of times when passing through, but the place is now really sue for a renovation. The ibis Budget is being cared for and its clean enough, but there are broken items and the whole place is looking a bit sad. There have been efforts to renew some things, but the rooms are outdated and...

The rooms are very congested. Even the bathrooms are like the ones in flights. Very congested. Also, there was no water in the morning due to some emergency cut from the council. If you have opened a hotel, you should ensure you supply basic facilities like water to the customers. The lady at the reception just gave 2 bottles for...

I am not a snob and can fit in anywhere but this place should be a backpackers budget at the very least and should not be available for families. I stayed there with my daughter and grand daughter and it was shocking. Not only could we not swing a cat in the place (couldn't possibly bring up a suitcase for...
