Bed Bugs Beware!
Booked for four nights but only stayed for two due to an infestation of bed bugs! I informed the owner who only offered me another room! Which I obviously declined. Had to throw away all my clothes and overnight bag as not going to risk taking bed bugs home!

Will not use again
This hotel is well below par of what a hotel should, room was clean but awful, the hotel smelt musty, my bathroom which was shared with three other rooms was on another floor. I looked at my room and the bathroom and walked out this hotel should not be operating

Could be better
The room I stayed in had a few maintenance issues, such as the skirting boards missing around the bottom of the tiny en-suite. The toilet roll holder was hanging off the wall. The soap dispenser in the shower was hanging to one side as it wasn't fixed properly. The on/off button on the electric shower didn't work, so you had to open the bi-fold shower doors, with the shower still running, to reach across and pull the pull-cord (I would suggest this is a big electrical safety issue as there was just tape over where the on-off button had been). Various floor tiles in the en-suite were cracked. One of the bedside lights didn't work. All the electrical fittings were brass and were tarnished or appearing to be going rusty. The curtains didn't fit the window properly and light streamed in either side. The bed was reasonably comfy, however and there was free parking and wifi. I don't think I would stay again.
