      Not impressed

      Room was smelly but this was actually from the corridor outside and settled after a couple of days. We reported that the toilet did not flush and this was attended to promptly but still was decidedly dodgy.I will be staying here again soon as I have already booked but will review it again. Reception staff,Edit, helpful and efficient.

      Stayed in one of the old rooms and was disappointed as hadn’t been refreshed in what seems like well over a decade. Staff are friendly and helpful as always
