Good value stay but no wifi in the rooms

A good value stay. Good breakfasts, very helpful and friendly staff, good service. Condition of the hotel is not exceptional, room was clean, reasonably decorated and functional with clean cotton sheets. The standard size double bed was bit a bit too firm for my taste. Ensuite shower worked well but only had a shower curtain attached to the upper frame from what was a previously removed shower door. The Wifi was intermittent and could only be relied on in the centre of the communal areas (there are dead zones in places) and it wouldn't reach the room at all. THEY "DON'T ADVERTISE WIFI IN THE ROOMS".
