Ok to rest your head
This place is good if you just need a place to sleep it's not the best but cheap and basic. Not the cleanest and we never saw a member of staff while we were there but if you just want a simple room it's perfect for that not really a family hotel.

Niot happy
The room was un ckean.bare wire cold water in our sink, no housekeeping at all, even though it stated there was daily ckeaner, even no new loo roll put in our shower room.we had to emoty our own bin, no top up of tea & coffee facilities.
Colin, gb4 night trip
Good 6.0
You can find better
Although there were "no smoking" signs throughout the building, there was strong cigarette smell in the guest house, especially on the first floor. Parking is not "limited spaces." It is "if you can find it on a side street." Best aspect: on several bus lines that give quick access to central city.
