One night
Worth staying if you’re after a quick overnight or short stay. It’s a bed, tv, fan no air, but opening doors onto a balcony, 2 shared shower/toilets rooms were very clean and old school but everything good. I was midweek so not noisy really, but I’m not sure how Fri-Sun would b with noise from downstairs? The pub is open til 3am but there was no music on my night so slept well. Great bed BUT..it has a wooden footer so if you’re 6ft or more you’ll be sleeping sideways. Room was clean, good size,own tv, fan. Nice linens and pillows. Great value.
