2/5 Poor

Travelled with family
Disliked: Property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Only stay there if no other option
Only stay there if you have to, i.e. need a break in journey. The place is odd. The rooms are outdated and old. I did not sleep all night due to noise from pub and then parties and loud music. The clientel of the hotel seems to consist of men who use the f word a lot. Not a place i would recommend. Windows could not be shut either (i.e. no bolt)

While the property was clean and the beds good there was no hot water in our room ir most of the showers. They had lost our booking and it took 20 minutes after our arrival before we got into our room.
