Wonderful service.

4/10 Fair

Not Good
The only good thing is its walking distance to town 10minutes. The room smelt as soon as you opened the door & it never went away. The room is so dated however a good size room. Well over prices for the condition. We would not stay here again or recommend it.

8/10 Very good

Fine for a quick stop over, not a long term stay
Room was average. First room we checked in was a box with a bed. Barely enough room for bags let alone to move around. We were kindly moved to a larger room which was ok, but sliding door was broken

K, 3-night family trip
Verified Hotels.com guest review

8/10 Very good

Loved the location - was an easy, flat five minute stroll to town. For a room that slept four people there wasn’t enough seating (the couch was big enough for one adult and two kids). Spacious room so could probably have more furniture. Perfectly adequate if you aren’t spending much time in the room! Lovely shower pressure, comfy beds (small but fine for an adult and a child sharing). Would stay again.

8/10 Very good

It was a nice enough property with great views however: * The bath had no plug * The shower leaked and obviously had for a while as the wall was rotting around the floor * The walls were somewhat thin and we could hear our neighbours Other than that, staff were great and it was pleasurable.
