This hotel definitely looks better in their listing than in reality. It looks run down when you approach it. The motel is separate from the hotel and I would not like to stay in the motel part. The sink had a slow drain, the toilet had a perpetual running water issue. When we arrived the room smelled like it had... More

I spent 2 nights in the hotel. When I get in, it smelled like someone vomitted somewhere in the room. The pillows were dirty. As I stayed 2 nights, I noticed that they did not clean up the room. They just tidied it. Otherwise the hotel is at 15 minutes walk from town center.

If you book this place for a bedroom on a budget you won't be disappointed. I expected a pool and jacuzzi as advertised, both of which were closed. The room was clean and tidy. However the rest of the buildings are really dated. On the upside the staff were lovely and very helpful.

Adequate and unembellished. The hotel/motel is simple in its appearance and furnishings. The car park spaces are gravel roads. An overall impression is like one 1980s building and compound with minimal refurbishments done. The lights are yellowed, stained and dim. The lounge has a 7' snooker table that's not well maintained (still enjoyable). We were directed to our block and... More

The front desk staff were friendly and helpful, especially when it came to re establishing the power in our room which unfortunately happened twice (stayed two nights in different rooms) (however they were really quick to resolve this matter). Room was tidy and amenities what we required for our short stay, microwave, small fridge, kettle tea/coffee making facilities, bathroom, heater... More

Good bed and location. Big enough room. Referred us to a nearby pub that gave us free drinks with our meal. The meals itself was good! Good heating in the room. The shower was not too good. The water pressure needed to be looked at. It was a good motel overall for an over nighter!

Overall stay was average. The kitchen was rather far off from our room, and the utensils/furniture in it were very old and dirty. Room wise, it is clean and tidy, though a bit backwards when it comes to quality of the furniture. The shower water pressure was very slow and horrible, took us forever to finish bathing. Service was ok,... More

Older citizens of former communist states and visitors from North Korea will feel right at home here. Ostalgia city. The communal kitchen smells of decades of rancid burnt oil. There is an industrial chimney in the middle of the hotel. The swimming pool has no water in it. I think Dostoyevsky stayed here when he wrote his most dismal novels.

Room was tiny ! Understood it to be a compact room....but.... could not shut the bathroom door once on the toilet, could not get legs into space by bed to get out and could not fit chair on the balcony. The room was in a complex that resembled a student block complete with pool table and table tennis, the corridors... More
