  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Very clean, well run, we were instantly given another room when the first one had people in it who took all the beds, not just the 4 they had paid for. Just a couple more hooks in the shower cubicles, please.

Worth and highly recommend

Wonderful stay, all the facilities are clean and new. Unlimited wifi provided and free table pool in bar area, guest also enjoy discount for drinks. Free simple breakfast. Just two things might bother, long stairs not good for big luggage. Nearby very hard to find parking
