    No and really unless you are a young backpacker I would find another hotel.

    Why is my review in this Hotel still pending approval after 5 days? People should know that we had £150 stolen from the room. The hotel staff were doing everything in their power to avoid helping and acting shady saying no one had entered our room. But refused to offer help, to give the number for the police, to call the manager and said the phone was broken though we offered ours to call. This was refused. Couldn't recommend this place less
