3 nights in a broom cupboard

Posted Sep 15, 2017
Pros: Location
Cons: Ridiculously tiny rooms
I booked a budget single room so I knew it was going to be small, but how small can a room in a decent looking hotel really be? The answer is ' a lot smaller than you think!'. I've looked again at the photos on the hotel website but they don't convey quite how cramped it actually is. There is no headboard on the bed so I put the chair between the bed and the window to stop the pillows falling off whilst I slept. Your clothes have to go onto 3 hangers which live on 2 wall hooks over the bed The shower room was similar tiny; luckily I'm only 5'7" so I could sit on the toilet without squashing my face against the opposite wall but I pity any six footers who stayed there. There is also a step running across the floor of the shower room, but with the tiles being all the same dark green pattern it could not be seen. Even when I knew it was there I still managed to twist my foot on it or trip over it in a momentary lack of concentration. The rest of the hotel is fine; nicely decorated with a nautical theme, with friendly staff, reasonable breakfast and light evening meal (soup and various salads). I hope the 'normal' rooms are good because these budget rooms let the hotel down very badly.

Quiet, convenient and recommended

Posted Feb 18, 2017 on Hotels
We are two adults who went to attend a jubilee a few kms outside the town. The hotel was conveniently located, in a quiet part of the town - even on a saturday night - and close to the railway station as well as the downtown taxi stop. This town is much, very much in fact, busier during the summer season, so please note that this reports pertains to the winter - off-season - season.

Nice and calm stay. Kind and service minded staff. The price was also good and included breakfast and supper. The hotel is located only 3 minutes from downtown/centrum with many restaurants and by the sea.

Maritime for business.

I stay here sometimes on business for a couple of nights at a time. The rooms are small, in fact the cheapest rooms are unbelievably small. The staff are all friendly though, and the place is clean and tidy. The food is also very good. The wifi is probably my main annoyance there, as it is rubbish.
