Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
Never again
The photos of the room on the website looked far better than the room we received. We stayed in a twin room on the ground floor which lacked lustre, smelt damp and was in desperate need for a spruce up. Surfaces were dusty, bathroom was mouldy/dusty and dated. The shower was like a dribble. We thought it's okay for one night it was just somewhere to get our heads down after a long day of travelling and walking. We hardly slept. Hotel maintainence staff where up and down the corridor all night (early hours of the morning 3 and 4am, talking really loud and even hoovering! We are really disappointed especially for the price we paid. The only redeeming factors were the location and the breakfast was good.
