Great location for a grest price, always a bonus to get free parking and free breakfast, the only downside was on one of the hottest days it could do with air conditioning rather than a fan in the room but hey ho well pleased.

There were cobwebs blowing about on the ceiling. The bed was not comfortable, the pillows were not very good, and there were no drawers to put your clothes in!!!! We were staying for 4 days, so needed places to put our clothes rather than living out of a suitcase. This place is only suitable for an overnight stay !!!!!

Ideal location

Stayed on a short break and the location was excellent near the city centre. Found the rooms a bit small for 2 adults and 1 teenager but for a short break was fine but any longer it would have been difficult.
