After a long day, arrived 7pm, tired, and was upgraded yeah. Got a spa pool, nice room, lights turned on for us, made to feel welcome. It wasn't expensive, quiet and would recommend. The exec room had a bed in Louie plus a main bedroom, shower, and a spa which was perfect.

We didn't use the spa or the pool, but saw there was a pool room and so on, so looked like it would be a good... More

I don't usually like to be negative, but this hotel was disgusting. Even tho it was cheaper than we usually go, we expect it to be clean even if it is way outdated. The decor was very old 70's 80's with cracked basins, peeling paint and missing tiles. The worst thing tho was the mould on the bedroom walls and... More

I have never stayed in such an unclean place - mildew on the bathroom ceiling, dirty bed cover, curtains etc Also no proper heating - an old pug in one which I was too scared to leave on unattended, power points that did not work. Would not recommended to anyone
