4/10 Fair

Dated hotel in need of rerubishment. Very small room. Overpriced although location good. Room temperature unbearable and no AC or way to control heating. Heated towel rail in bathroom make the whole small room overheat and no way to switch off. Plug in fan in room provided as this is obviously an issue for everyone but only 2 sockets in whole room. Roon noisy even though windows shut. Wojld not stay here again.

Great location
Great location in the new town. Close to the train station and buses. Short walk to the old town. Restaurant for breakfast was also great and had gluten and dairy free options. Would definitely stay there again.
