It was quiet, clean and well priced. I liked that we could get a good meal in the club on arrival even though they were busy and said there would be a wait. We needed to stay in this area- there is little other accommodation here, so location was great for us. The room was spacious, clean, warm and had everything we needed- good shower! The decor is a bit dated but we didn’t mind that. We were at the far end from the club so it was quiet.
