Way over priced for the location and condition. Rooms were clean but old. Shower had no water pressure. Couldn’t turn the cold on as it would over power the hot.

Our room had a private balcony, which we utilised. it meant we could sit outside and also have the balcony door open overnight while we slept. I wouldn't have liked to have a room without a balcony. Our relatives stayed in room 12 and she commented to me that the room smelt like vomit when they arrived. I said that she should have said so. however, that was not a pleasant thing on arrival.
