The property had the most unkept appearance inside and out. Stained filthy carpet and drapes. Nothing pleasant about it except walking distance to food outlets

Nice hotel for a quick stay in a beautiful town. Hotel staff were friendly and pool was a welcome sight in summer.

Nice service and clean room

The hotel was in a good vicinity to the highway and local food options. Hotel was clean but needed some more comfortable chairs to relax in after a long trip. Would recommend getting rid of the green Fluoro lights in the car park as they shine through the blinds at night or maybe put block out curtains up inside the room. Otherwise our stay was very good and the hotel was a good choice.
