2 out of 5
Hotel is old. Room was bit small and dirty, terrible time trying to get the right temperature in shower. We were in front part so heard the town bells till 11pm and again at 7am, also buses and although this isn't the hotels fault there were pavement works going on outside which ended late and started early. No parking but do offer a discount for nearby ncp parking, no tea or coffee available in room. Beds were ok and so were the staff.
