Not bad but not great ”

So first thing I noticed was that the front of the hotel isn't pictured for a reason and thats because it isn't in that great a shape and while the lobby wasn't bad and was clean thats about all there is to say to it. The guy that greeted us was friendly enough however wanted us to write our credit card details down including the back three digit number which we were uncomfortable with especially seen as we'd already paid for our room via the website. When we got in the room we immediately found a number of broken although not unusable items. A lamp, the curtain rail one of the bedroom drawers and the shower door were all either broken or barely functioned. One of the beds were so wobbly that I doubt it's going to be long before it caves in. It was clean though with minimal noise which was unexpected. Also a male attempted to walk into our room at one point which we couldn't prevent as the lock on the door didn't seem to work properly. All in all it did the job but I wouldn't go back again

Great location . Small single but adequate. ”

Very friendly staff and helpful at all times. Excellent buffet breakfast. Free parking with lots of spaces.

the owner and his family were really keen to make sure that you were comfortable and happy but they achieved this without being intrusive.
