The place looks very historic which is what caught my eye when i was looking for a place to stay. Staff (Craig) was very welcoming and helpful and Craig always had a smile on his face. Room was in immaculate condition and the bed was so comfy. I also had a balcony so it was nice to sit outside in the sun and chill. Very easy to find and is walking distance to the local shops. I wil definitely be staying here again in the future. Thank you for your services.

Room was tidy and clean, bathroom looked to be recently updated. Classification was a one bedroom apartment to sleep 2 adults 1 child. All very small, Second bed was a fold out sofa that was grossly uncomfortable.
