Walked into the room, looked, and walked out in disgust. The stains on the bedspread was the final straw

Hotel is very old and amenities date back to the 1960’s. Shared bathrooms which should be made very clear so that this cannot be overlooked when booking. Reminiscent of student accomodation back in the 80’s. Although the cheapest place available at the time it is still grossly overpriced for the quality of the accomodation. On a positive note I didn’t see any vermin.

The room was like something in the 70's. Bed frames falling apart, air conditioner loud like an airplane and limited controls, fan was out of balance and only had high setting, bed mattress was old and saggy...separate toilet and showers were old and disgusting....could never recommend this property to anyone...
