Horrible experience, stay well away!!
First impression was bad, broken tiles on entrance, tired and shabby decoration, unfortunately this got worse. The room was very tired and basically should not have been on sale. One “damp towel” was provided for two guests. The sheets displayed yellow stains and the mattress had springs poking through, there was also damp on the bedroom walls. The bathroom was a joke, the sink tap would not turn off unless you forced it down. I can honestly say that this has been the worst room I,ve been provided with ever! It goes without saying that I checked out within 10 minutes. I explained the issues to the manager, she did not seem in the slightest concerned and just said that she would not be charging the company I booked with for the night, which is incorrect as they did charge the company. Horrible experience,stay well away from here.....☹️

Tired hotel in desperate need of modernisation.
The hotel is very tired and fell way below 6.8/10 and was a little expensive for what we got. The hotel receptionist was friendly, but we were given 2 old sad towels - a hand towel and very small bath towel, no others in room. We decided not to use the shower - black mould all around the fittings. Not all the lightbulbs worked in the room. The bed was comfortable and we slept well. It was just about adequate for a nights stay with early morning rise, but I would not recommend for anything else.
