Good, well run venue
Clean and well presented property. The card machine did not work but the receptionist was efficient to resolve payment issue. The property fronts onto a side road so parking is easy as there ia £5 charge to park in the car park behind. On the night of Thursday 12th a we had Italy's answer to a drunk Dom Jolly berating his family back home and raising all the dormitories whilst wandering around the street like a part boiled piece of fusilli pasta. Breakfast provision was good and the bathroom was clean. I would recommend visiting

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Charged 6 nights for a cancellation
This hotel, I booked in error, as did not realise it was ladies only. They called me 10 mins after I booked and started shouting at me for booking the wrong room and I would be charged. They charged me for 6 nights for a homeless person, that could not stay 1 night. They refused to refund, which meant I could not use this to book elsewhere. Disgusting
