2 night stay in family room
The room was nice, comfortable and cleanliness was acceptable. The lights above the bed didnt work, and it was a bit noisy from the street below. In my honest opinion it was a bit overpriced for just a room however i would stay there again.

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Great location but truly awful to stay in
Stayed here for 1 night with a friend as we were just passing through. This place is a dump. It's a scruffy pub in a great location just on the harbourside. The common rooms and area's felt grubby and uncared for. Our triple room was very basic, scruffy, and uncared for too. The shower room was small and the shower itself was just a trickle of water. The shower door didn't close as the bed stopped it. Also, with no exceptions, the staff were unfriendly, unhelpful and curt. Avoid this place if you can, it's rubbish
