3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Ok hotel close to the train station
The hotel is located centrally and very close to the train station. The overall value however is average especially when you compare the price to fact that the rooms are not very big, the furniture is a bit dated and the bathroom a bit minimalist.

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Located close to railway station and bus stops although a fair walk into town centre and not the nicest of areas at night....It is a no frills, basic hotel which provides a comfortable if small room and very basic bathroom.Very friendly staff and a reasonable breakfast buffet. You have to pay up front on arrival which is unusual.Part of a chain of hotels bearing this name.....there were lots of French people staying which gave it a very family feel. It did what we needed to do(provide somewhere to sleep and waah) but with a very basic feel.
