Would not recommend, hotel is run down. We were given the wrong room on arrival, after being moved we found stains on the towels. And the whole hotel smelt musty and damp. Later that night we changed the temperature on our heat pump as was a bit cold, only to find it started spitting out ice and leaking. Someone form reception came and only option was to move rooms again. We ended up leaving it as we were there for only one more night and this happened at around 11pm. Breakfast is a waste of time. Better to go somewhere else. We have traveled a bit and have never had such a bad experience.
