Very tired place in need of a good makeover, but clean and cheap. Don,t use the pool unless it has been cleaned since our visit!

Property is quite run down and a bit noisy so bring your ear plugs but it was kind of quirky and cute! The things that mattered like towels and bedding were nice and clean and the continental breakfast was simple but good. Parking was good. Location was good and there were some nice places to eat within easy walking distance.

It stank of smoke despite the no smoking signs. The room and reception both smelt
