We liked this place. It was off the main drag (bit hard to find) but close to everything. The rooms were big and clean, with a bath. We payed a good price for what we got and were happy with pretty much everything. The breakfast was ok.
However, the thing that ruined our stay was the construction next door. It started at 7am and went until about 5 or 6 pm Saturday and Sunday. It is obviously not the hotels fault, but we had no warning when we booked or checked in. There was no apology during our time or when we checked out. There was jackhammers and things that made it unbearable for us to be in the room. Maybe just check to see when you book if this has finished yet?
The internet cut out a few times but worked well overall.
