Room on ground floor partially subterranean and very dingy. Room was clean, bedding and towels etc good. Breakfast was just ok. Staff very helpful.

Guest rating:


"Really handy location at a reasonable price"

We stayed Thurs - Sun and found the location to be pretty central for everything we wanted to see (Castle etc). The only downside is that the beds aren`t king size but they did put up the sofa bed for us at no additional cost.

"Ideal location."

As a family of four we found the room to be a bit small, the beds were not very comfortable and some of the dcor needed work. Overall as we only stayed for four nights and slept there, the best thing was that the hotel was close to everything and we were out and about during the day anyway.
