Great wee hotel. Wifi did not work in our room, but we did not ask about it as we were not really there for long.

Price reflects quality, walls are paper thin. Staff unwelcoming.

the bathroom was worn out - kick boards looked old needed painting shower door didnt shut properly and any time the shower was used it made a terrible noise like a air block - so loud - impossible to use if someone was trying to sleep the beds were comfortable and clean buy I thought the bathroom was very run down - no heated towel rail or ventilation except a very big window to open ... not safe to leave open
