Convenient to all attractions and town centre. Room spacious and generally clean just needed a bit more of a deep clean in the room and a few fix ups.

The room was dusty, found cockroach in bathroom and food under one of the beds. I booked this as a cheap stop over for the evening before heading to our final destination. It was cheap but even then you at least expect somewhere to be clean.
