I can't believe the state of the room we stayed in. It was a double room with a shared bathroom. The shower head was broken, the plug hole didn't drain well. We needed more towels than usual as the bathroom floor got soaked. The bedside shelf was falling off the wall, there were holes in the wall where the other... More

Really basic hotel with the full english breakfast. Room was clean but toilet smelled moldy. Our room was located across from a busy street so we could hear the traffic. Minus for the missing minibar. Pretty good value for the money.

Don't book here, the receptionist gave away our room after us having booked it months ago. When we arrived she told us that our room had been given to someone else and that there was nothing she could do.
