    the location is great the room size is good. the whole place smells of mould. the ceilings in our room were covered in mould. the rooms still have the 1980's tapware. the tiles are all mismatched and the grout needs replacing. It is old tired and smelly

    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

    The reception staff were friendly and could not do enough to help especially the one woman who was on the desk on Saturday and Sunday. The hotel needs an update but the staff made up for that.
