This is a hard review to write because I liked the hotel despite a number of drawbacks.
The hotel is on a busy road. Turning right out of the hotel requires patience waiting for a gap in the traffic.
The room was small but adequately furnished. The shower room (no bath) was tiny and cramped. Nice touches with sewing kit, cotton wool etc being provided. Also tea and coffee although the tea pot hadn't been emptied from the previous occupant and contained a moldy tea bag!
It was very warm when we stayed there and the ceiling fan provided welcome breeze. However, we still needed to sleep with the window open. Being so near the road, even at night there was a lot of traffic noise and although the hotel provided ear plugs, I still found it hard to get to sleep.
The owners were friendly and provided a good breakfast. We didn't eat in the restaurant.
Would I stay there again - probably not.
