      The hotel is situated in a central location close to the harbour. A good stay for those on a budget but the hotel is very dated.

      Location, staff and parking were great. But that's about as far as it goes. Our room was very outdated, no lock on bathroom window, door chain broken. Beds below average. Carpet badly stained. Bathroom had hairs and grime in plain view. Table not clean. There's a nightclub connected to the hotel and for our Friday and Saturday stay it was super noisy until the early hours. Lots of doof doof music and yelling and screaming. I wouldn't stay again at all but particularly on a weekend. I guess you get what you pay for, however the staff were great and the location can't be beaten.
