Do not choose room 3, the mattresses are so tired they have put sponge toppers and blankets on top and still they are awful and creak all night, also the plumbing is dreadful, when you flush the toilet it makes an horrendous noise. The breakfast was good and the location is fine but it is very over-priced. Having said that there is a very good bus service nearby if you don't want to use your car and we found this most useful, especially since we have bus passes. I don't know what the other rooms are like because we didn't have the opportunity to see any or indeed talk to anyone about the beds. Judging by the comments in the visitors book most people seem to have had comfortable beds, lucky them, they can't have been in room 3!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Although one response I saw was written in Japanese so difficult to say. I wouldn't stay here again as I think it's overpriced for what it is, it's tired and the only good thing about the room was it was spacious, the voile type curtain in the bathroom was mouldy at the bottom and upon arriving we were told the towels weren't dry and they would be put in later. Then we noticed one of the bottom sheets on one of the beds hadn't been ironed, it was all creased. Not good value for money.
