Cleanliness was terrible. Dirty room. Coffee left caked on teaspoon. Plastic fork with dust by bed by radiator. Stained sheets. Yuk. Had to park a distance from hotel. Breakfast was not good either.

The rooms were nice enough for a budget hotel but the toilet did not flush, we did not have flannels nor -any mini toiletries you expect to find in a hotel. However, comfy bed and friendly staff!

Fantastic location easy to walk to all the attractions. Unfortunately accommodation quite basic, and our family room was tired, tatty and a bit grubby although the beds were clean and comfortable and the room was very spacious with a separate bunk bedded room for the kids which was perfect. Plastic tea and coffee cups in our room were not great! Again at breakfast!!??
