5/5 Excellent

The room was clean. The staff were helpful. Very good value for money

3/5

The property has an old world charm. The rooms are large and spacious. There is no pool even though it is advertised as having a pool. It is tired but clean. It has character.

Mouldy shower walls, no hot water, the whole place needs a clean and renovation. The staff were friendly and the breakfast was good, but it was way over priced for what you get
