Rooms are nice and big with wonderful views. After-hours check in was simple and courteous. Cleaning was poor but only simple things. Great value for money. Will stay again

Reception closes at 12 on a Sunday, so when we arrived at 2pm to check in, it took over an hour to contact someone. We were there for 10 nights and they never came and changed the bed linen. You must bring your own toilet paper. The room had patches all over the walls and a very rough paint job. The bed frame was held together by a couple of screws. Wouldn’t recommend to anyone.
