I booked a room at this place through Hotels.com and the deposit was taken from my credit card. Then, because I could not go through with it, I cancelled within the time allowed. However, despite numerous emails to Hotels.com, my booking deposit was never refunded to me. Avoid !

Very good. Stayed recently for 3 nights. Rooms clean and good value for money. Alaina and Louise were friendly and very helpful. Couldn't do enough. Shame about no breakfast but we were told when booking breakfast isn't available. Would definitely visit again if ever back in the area.

We're taken to the room, through the kitchen and up a narrow flight of stairs. The room was unbelievable. It advertised a fridge, which was about 15 inches high, not plugged...
