Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Great location, friendly staff. If you have a big car parking can be a little difficult getting around corners. Clean and tidy inside but a little dated.

Great location and ok condition
This hotel is fine, but perhaps 3 star at best. It is fairly old and tired but was perfectly ok for us due to its handy location to the Mount and the fact that we only used the room to sleep.
