.keep your expectations low for this one and you may not be disappointed. Only good thing to say is location, very short walk to centre-cafes etc. Don’t expect a helping hand on arrival. Good thing I had a great taxi driver to help with my bags :). On a side note watch out for white tail spiders in the shower.

Its an oldie but a goodie, clean and tidy, staff excellent, room was 80's decor, floor creaked & groaned & was uneven, all part of staying in an old wooden hotel.
