The property is a little aged but convenient. Our big problem with our experience is that the restaurant will NOT make any reservation for hotel guests and its pot luck to get a seat. Dont bank on a meal at this establishment as advertised.

The front rooms have no noise mitigation measures meaning the people in these rooms can’t sleep (the noise from drunken locals started at 10.00pm and went right through to 5.00am). These rooms need to be closed, or proper sound baffling install. Please note I had ear plugs but the noise was so bad these did not help.
