Not maintained
Was our last minute booking but was disappointed by the service n with the overall room. Not enough towels provided, n the ones available were not clean. The wash room was dirty as if had not been cleaned for months. There were cobwebs in the room as well as in the bathroom. I have gone for even cheaper accommodation once but the the facilities were much better. I would not recommend anyone for this hotel.

Good location with ok facilities.
Good location, close to city centre but not in it. Hotel staff was very friendly and welcoming. Room and shared bathroom was clean and generally well prepared. Walls were very thin which was awkward as everything could be heard, and staff's children were free to wander down the hall. Nice Tv in room that didn't work and there was a hole in the wall.
