Don't settle for less-find something better
I was placed in an odd back area of the property that seemed a little dirty and not very nice. I was also told breakfast was not included since I booked it online and did not even know that was not an option. The owner was a little surly and not very welcoming. I would not recommend this location.

Pretty good
All in all, a pretty good place to stay. The only negative was that the room was hot with not ventilation and the beds were okay, not overly comfortable.

Not good
Comfy bed and nice breakfast!!! That’s it basically,everything else very dated and very shabby,terrible shower that you could never put a child under,unplug something from a socket and the socket nearly came out as well
