Disappointed with the room I was offered. Had a bad odour and the dining chairs had stains all over them. I actually went back to reception and said I cannot stay in that room - after an 8 hour drive I wanted something cosy and warm and welcoming and it was none of those things unfortunately. I then booked into a different hotel.

Close to the city centre at an affordable price however, you get what you pay for. Very basic, small motel room.
