Reception is clean and open, staff were OK. We eventually found our room, signage wasn't too clear. Room was basic, fairly clean, quiet dated and worn in some places. Still, bed was comfy, warm shower and not much noise (except crying baby next door on last couple of nights). Breakfast wasn't as bad as I was expecting (looking at other...

Dear Guest, Thank you for your comments. The person who entered to your room was not a robber,but one of the maintenance personnel who is going through all the rooms to check which bathroom ceiling needs renovation. We are currently doing refurbishing into the rooms. Only the management, housekeeping and maintenance have master keys to open all hotel room doors....

Well having read the reviews on this hotel before we went I was really really surprised at what people were complaining at. The rooms were basic, but clean, clean towels every day, chambermaid service every day, and a very pleasant lady we had at that. People were moaning at the food, well if you want burger and chips then DON'T...

This place has one good review and the manager says that proves that all the negative reviews are lies and there's even people saying 'Ignore the negative reviews'...What???? Go back in the middle of summer and come back and tell me that. Are we making it up? Was our holiday not ruined by hundreds of out of control students?? Did...

Dear Sir, Thanks for taking the time the review our property. We are definitely not the Ritz and we never claim to be perfect, but we have returning customers year after year.

This is not a 4 star hotel, it's a dive that's worse than anywhere I've ever visited. The rooms are filthy, the bed is broken, the walls are paper thin and breakfast is a disgrace. Each morning we have to clean cutlery and plates because they have a film of dirt running across them. I can tolerate things being outdated...
