Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Arrived at 11pm. Had spoken to the staff earlier in the evening saying we would be late, they put on heat pump and left key out to make it easy when we arrived. Room was clean and tidy. Bathroom is a bit run down but everything worked fine. Perfect place for a cheap one night stopover
