4/5 Good

Liked: Room comfort
Cheap and pleasant enough.. great location.
I had 5 nights here, for £145, I cant complain too much. They're private little pods, sleep 4. I was on my own. Could be a tight fit for 4 like. Own shower and toilet is the benefit here. Freeview tv. A/C. However the fire alarm went off at 11:45pm the first night, this is warned in the room, so someone woke us all up. Smelt fowsty, maybe the room hadn't been used. Also not sure on the 'enhanced cleaning', when there was still visible cobwebs lol. Compared to Thorpe Shark Hotel which is identical... the upkeep of theirs is way better. In general, it was okay :) Central-ish location in Cornwall, enough amenities near by in St Austell. ID is required on check in! I slept fine anyway, par from night 1. Would I come again? Possibly.
