Always good to stay here. Staff are very polite, secure parking, rooms are good size. Its a very welcoming place to stay. Only down fall is the beds that squeak and roll away when sitting/sleeping but still got a good sleep

The room was very outdated and didn’t match my expectations from the photos. The beds are uncomfortable and the bathroom needs a good clean (there was rust falling out of the exhaust fan, dirt in the corners). Waited 10mins at reception for a simple question to be answered as staff were upstairs chatting and ignored the bell. No trims on the door to stop leafs etc from coming under, was a windy night and our room was disgusting in the morning! Would have changed locations for my stay but we only actually slept there and were out all day, will not stay again.
