    Not good but at last it was cheap

    I'm guessing that my issues stemmed from his being a top floor room. However... there was masses of visible mould across the whole bathroom. The bathroom was so closed you couldn't use it without the door open - especially as the sink overhangs the toilet. Fine for me, not so good for couples. The window had about a 1 inch gap when it was closed so it was incredibly noisy and the thermostat on the radiator didn't work so it was permanently on full heat - it was 20 degrees outside! Carpets were dirty and the window blind when fully down was taking up one half of the pillow space on the bed as the window overlapped the bed.

    Last chance saloon stay.

    Checking in was a nightmare with keys and keyfobs. After about 30mins of standing around we got sorted

    Amazing i loved it. The Best

    Stayed 4 nights in Aug 2019


    My son and I stayed for the night. My husband and I stayed previously and had a fine visit. This time, the room was not quite as clean and the activity in the square outside the motel was much more active than in the past. Loud music until 2am. The bed wasn’t very comfortable and the room was damp. Low budget accommodations. You get what you pay for. The staff was friendly and kind during check in & check out.
