Good location but needs money spent on it.
The hotel could be amazing; great location and beautiful building but the owner doesn’t want to spend anything on it. Staff are very pleasant but the hotel is more than tired and needs a full renovation. Great for a nights stay and the price was very low too, but could be so much better if the care was taken to make it right. I wish these people would start to realise that the reason people stay at the Hilton and pay top money is because of the fact that it’s clean, appealing and has everything people need.

Overnight stay
Great place to stay, every thing a little tired but clean with friendly staff. Buffet breakfast excellent, replenished regularly no dried food at all. Good choice of teas too and the pastries say no more! Swimming pool small but good for a refreshing dip, towels supplied.
