Nice clean budget accommodation, served by friendly staff. Very basic amenities but fits the purpose, is good for a short stay.

    Property was reasonable And you get what you pay for. Budget hotel free wifi in room and fine for a place to sleep. Room had a bit of a musty type smell but overall for a budget priced place ok.
