    The staff in the hotel is very friendly and welcoming. We liked the coffee bar downstairs, it is excellent for just relaxing and having a great time. The bed was comfortable and room nice.

    The restaurant downstairs was quite bad. We chose it because we booked the room including dinner, but would not recommend it. We waited our order for an hour even though the restaurant was empty and the food wasn't worth the wait. Staff on the restaurant is not as good as in the reception.

    Very clean rooms and good value for money

    The shower was one single jet and not a lot of water coming through. Good for one night, but wouldn’t stay more than that.

    It is very dated, old, flat and dingy towels, bed was sagging, and shower was without a door or curtain. Onsite restaurant was terrible!
