Paper thin building
If your susceptible to noise don't stay. You can hear people's conversations from neighbouring rooms, the common area and any footsteps in the building. Creaky floors. Everything's old, not much space to move into the kitchen area. At least the other guests were nice, only positive really, plus location and cost. I'd only stay if you're really on a budget. Stove is probably 50 years old

Showers are all good, nice and hot just don’t have a shower when they’re all in use you’ll get a cold bust every now and again. Staff were polite and friendly as 😁 The Spa was nice and hot and close to the Main Street for food too Only downside were the blood stains on my sheet that I discovered when making the bed, which wasn’t a nice discovery. Although in saying that I would happily stay there again, but I would bring my own bedding next time.
