2/5 Poor

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
We booked what was billed as a 'deluxe twin'. It was cheap and was the only advantage. It was a 5 berth room we had exclusive use of. Sheets were worn, quilts and beds threadbare. We had to ask for towels and the receptionist seemed more annoyed by his conversation being interrupted and was resentful of issuing a second room key. Furthermore, breakfast wasn't offered as advertised and the kitchen locked so we couldn't do our own . Pretty awful and not an experience to be repeated.

The place was grotty- but to be fair to the owner/ manager it’s cheap so I wouldn’t expect much better. It’s cheap for a reason after all.

Horrible place to stay
We almost arrived to the hotel at 7pm and waiting almost onr 1,5 hours for our room to be ready. The hotel is terrible. The walls are very thin. If someone pass from the next corridor we felt it in our room heavily. I definitely wouldn't recommend it.

Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Location is close to the city centre (approx. 20 mins walking distance). Free parking available but spaces are limited. Can park in the side streets after 6:30pm. The beds were not made in our room and first impressions put us off so there were stains visible. This was sorted after complaining to reception and on our return after dinner. Was not able to sleep at night as there were noisy guests still talking at 1:00am. The shower facilities in the room was good. We checked out early the next day and didn’t stay the two nights as booked. Not what you see in the photographs.
