I loved this hotel, friendly staff and large rooms. Bathrooms and toilets are shared though they have separate lockable doors for each. Food downstairs is great. My only criticism was that the check in is located in an area where children are unable to go. Staff did however look after the kids as I checked in. Will definately use again.

The staff were rude & not helpful. I asked for a special condition as we needed to be at a venue at 2pm & they refused early checkin so we could get ready. I rang early on the day so my room could've been cleaned early on the list.

Excellent budget accommodation. Clean & a big comfy bed. Was worried about the shared bathroom but it was clean with a great shower, although bit hard to get dressed inside cubicle. Meals in bistro were reasonable & good food. Good, reasonably priced breakfast cafes nearby. Room 12 has the sqeakiest floor I have ever walked on, but don't know how you would fix that. Can't hear noise from downstairs so made for a quiet night's sleep. Could do with a little mirror in the room. Overall, excellent & wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

Convenient located close to everything

Doors are closing with a lot of bang, doesn’t help with your sleep, noisy on the weekend from pub fun. Overall not bad, clean shower and toilets.

Looks better than it is

Hotwater in the shower was disappointing. Took close to 5 mins to get some warm water in the morning. Rooms look much better on the pictures than they are

Room was small ( but we already knew it would be) it was clean and tidy. With no air conditioning it was a tad hot and stuffy and we actually queried to ourselves how guests would have coped in the summer time with no air conditioning. All in all, it was an ok experience with nothing to complain about.

Poor condition

Budget hotel with no air con. The room was unclean, super hot and suffocating. I ended up cutting short my stay in here. Not recommended.
