    Very helpful and polite staff who couldn't be nicer but have their work cut out. We had a great stay there and saw a difference as the week went on. The owner needs to spend money to bring it back to original standard.

    Good Afternoon The front doors are locked at midnight but on your room key there is a key to the front door, so you would be able to access the hotel at any time. Kind regards
