3/5 Okay

Travelled with group
Was ok, my friend and I had the twin room it’s very small/cramped. The bathroom was clean which was good, I didn’t see the kitchen but my friend says it was good condition and stocked with everything you need. I’d stay again but on my own

3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Good location and reasonably clean rooms. However, the rooms were extremely tight and there was only one washroom/shower on each floor which were somewhat clean.

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
I enjoyed the building and the rooms and bathrooms were clean, however when you first walked in there was a faint smell of urine. This could've been from the bar but either way it was unpleasant. The floors were creaky but that's expected of an older building like this.
