6/10 Good

Just okay
We booked three rooms for a single night stay with family. Our room was spacious and cleanish, no visible dust or dirt but there was something splashed up one wall and the overall condition of the paintwork was very tired. The extractor fan didn't work and the room smelled foisty. My eldest daughter was happy with her room, but my other daughter stated her room was small, cramped and also smelled bad. There was only one pillow per person on the beds and no spares. The whole hotel was quite dated and shabby but fine for a no frills overnight stay. The hotel charges for wifi access which is a joke in this day and age. Breakfast was tasty and there was adequate choice of cooked or continental style offerings. There was nothing that would make me want to rush back to this hotel, but if it was the only place available at this price point I would probably stay again. Parking was okay, and the location is easily walkable to the city attractions but we chose to take a taxi.
