Bring your own pillow.
Old hotel in need of updating. Pillows are horrible, like sleeping on bricks. Nice and helpful staff.

2-star hotel at best.
Staff not overly friendly. No wi-fi. No elevator. Breakfast vastly overpriced. Room was ok but definitely no frills. Bed was comfy. No screens on windows so bugs got in since it was warm enough to need open windows. Car park too small and had to park on the street. The old building was quite pretty but in need of work. Toilet groaned loudly when flushed.

Run down but clean and charming
Booked last minute and checked review later. Made us nervous or lowered expectations. Room was clean though the toilet was nearly coming off the wall. Staff was very polite and breakfast was grand. Parking is around back and a little inconvenient but free! Loved the area. Ate at Platform Pizza - very good!

good value for the money
Hotel is old but has a lot of character. The hallways are narrow and you need to step up and back down to get to some of the rooms. It felt like we were walking through the Titanic. Although it was old, it was clean and I felt comfortable in the room. The room locks were not very secure, so I would never trust anything of any value left in the room. Limited parking is available in the back, but it is very limited. It looks like there is some small amount of parking allowed in the street in front of the hotel. Overall, it was a reasonable place for the price and I would stay again.

Think again.,,
We enjoyed our night. Staff was wonderful. The hotel was old. Lack of decent wifi made it a bad nights stay..
