Good overnight accommodation
Small room very clean. Breakfast included edible but wouldn't want to go out of way to get. Had a few beers and Slept well till early hrs when got a bit noisy could hear traffic and road sweeper going past from about 06:30. Dining room on 1st floor what looked an old function room all sepeate from bar. Room information states parking disc available but too late once in room didn't see anything about it when booking. Corridors and room door look poor but once in room fine. Water pipes and bathroom fan a little noisy. Nice TV. Overall fine not outstanding, if had to would book again but not for a stay of more than 2 nights and would probably eat breakfast elseware. Priced at very top end of I would pay for this accommodation had better for less. Guest house class accommodation, its not really a hotel, bar not really part of it.
